We’re back with another studio tour from one of our original designers August Wren (Jennifer Orkin-Lewis)! Jennifer is an artist, illustrator and author who divides her time in a very colorful house right outside of New York City and a small studio in the city. She has been obsessed with painting from an early age, was always making art and creating something new. She is known for her daily sketchbook paintings which she has been doing for over 5 years.

It has become a visual diary of them moments that pass by, sometimes unnoticed. Her paintings are primarily gouache and watercolor but also include ink, pencil and the occasional marker.  She was a textile designer and stylist before becoming an illustrator. She also teaches painting classes on Creativebug as well as workshops and retreats.

You can see more of Jennifer’s fabric collections on our website and follow her on Instagram (@AugustWren) to stay up to date with her work!
