"I find myself drawn to the life of a Renaissance man. My fingers in a lot of pies, so to speak. But if I had to define myself I would say I am an Artist, Writer and Intuitive Healer. Using these skills I weave worlds that insight change and inspire imagination. I bend the very fabric of our Universe to create images and tales that entice the participant to embark on a journey of transformation.
Art is meant to be a journey, to take you somewhere, an actual place, a place in your memory or simply somewhere in your imagination. With my work I strive to take that experience even further. All of my work is divinely inspired and crafted with the highest intent for the future holder. With something of my creation you will find yourself leaving your journey a different person than you began." - Lughnas Eabhan

A bit more about the artist...
Lughnas was born Patrick Harrison in Elizabeth, New Jersey in October of 1989. They grew up in the woods in Southern Maine with Their parents and younger sister and always loved their connection to nature and the world around them. They like to consider themself a “Mainer” even though some might disagree depending on your definition. But regardless they have a serious love for the state that “raised him” and a passion and dedication to all things Maine.
He graduated college in 2012 with a very successful senior show at the New Hampshire Institute of Art in Manchester, NH; earning his BFA in Illustration. After a brief attempt to make it in “the big city”, he quickly grew homesick for the beautiful landscapes and relaxed lifestyle of his home state and it’s more rural surroundings. In addition to his professional schooling he considers himself a “student of life” trying to incorporate learning into his daily routine and strives to foster that mentality of “lifelong learning” in others.
In addition to his love of art in all its forms he also enjoys nature hikes, and is an avid gardener. They are a die-hard bibliophile with a library that exceeds the hundreds and is constantly growing. They are a lover of all things fantasy and happily consider themself a “nerd”. They love art books, spicy foods, a rainy day spent reading, and learning new meditation techniques.
Currently they make their home in Portmsouth, New Hampshire. A very witchy city where the mornings smell of salt spray and the evenings are still quiet despite the downtown life. They live with their two partners in a polyamorous triad with their dog Terra and lovebird Meelo. They dream of a life writing, painting and wildcrafting in the wild mountains that their peoples have always called home on both sides of the seas. For in truth the Appalachians and the Mountains of the West were once connected before the Atlantic burst between them. They feel drawn to creating a new kind of Celtica for the modern age in these ancient mountains.
