Posts In Jennifer Orkin Lewis

Jennifer Orkin Lewis | Featured Artist


Here we go into our new season – we kick things off this Sunday, September 27th at Dixon Place at 11:30. The theme is COLOR – a central aspect of our gatherings. For this month, we have a wonderful visual artist named Jennifer Orkin Lewis – Jennifer’s been working on original color studies just for the service and I can’t wait to see them. Her work is fanciful and charming and, yes, COLORFUL. Jennifer has a project to paint every day – so inspiring, right – which she documents on her instagram account.

Check out her bio below, with links to her site and instagram account. And join us this Sunday for COLOR – it’s gonna be bright.

I am an artist and illustrator based in a beautiful little village just north of New York City on the Hudson River. I’ve loved drawing and painting for as long as I can remember and I’m thrilled to get to my little attic studio every day and paint! My work is inspired by the everyday small things I see, a bird in a tree, a garden, crowds of people, a beautiful table with luscious food. I mostly paint with gouache but I also use acrylics, markers, pencils and pen to create mixed media. I spent many years after graduating from Rhode Island School of Design as a textile stylist designing prints for children’s clothing and lingerie.
