Jennifer Orkin Lewis
Jennifer Orkin Lewis is a painter, illustrator, and author working in New York City. You might know her by her pen name, August Wren, under which she has produced lots of incredible art. She is known for her daily sketchbook paintings which she has been doing for over 5 years. Every day (weekends and vacations included) she paints for up to 30 minutes the things that surround and inspire her. After graduating from RISD, she worked for years as a textile stylist designing prints for children’s clothing and lingerie before becoming an illustrator. In addition to her daily paintings and sketches, she has worked with clients such as Anthropologie, Abrams Books, Chronicle Books, Flow Magazine, Kate Spade, Eeboo, TeNeues, Roger La Borde, and many more. Her first book, Draw Every Day, Draw Every Way, is a creative guided journal that encourages people to find daily inspiration and develop a daily drawing habit. The follow-up book, 100 Days of Drawing, is scheduled for release on September 4th, 2018. You can see more of her work on her website at augustwren.com.
