Jennifer Orkin Lewis

is an artist, author and illustrator based in both a little NYC apartment and a sweet house north of the city. She has been obsessed with painting from an early age, and was always making art and creating something new. She is known for her daily sketchbook paintings which she has been doing for over 6 years. Her paintings are primarily gouache and watercolor but also include ink, pencil and the occasional marker. Many of her sketchbook art ends up on products such as Stationery, Puzzles, Fabric, Home Decor, Murals and multiple other products. She has also written and illustrated a growing number of books. Jennifer is available for collaborations and commissions, her favorite way to work.
