About

The subtlety of patterns in natural forms and the colors as they appear in the natural world interest me. That juxtaposed with my love of patterns and color in textiles and the material world is the basis for much of my visual exploration. I have always been interested in our relationship with nature.

I have been Influenced greatly by my years working as a printmaker. Paper is my favorite surface to paint, and often paint in layers working with the residue of pigment that gets trapped within the fibers.

My love of birds and their gift of flight is a recurring theme in much of my work often used used as a metaphor (although I rarely paint them in flight.) for life.

I am a Brooklyn artist who works in education, who never has enough time to create art and this blog is my attempt to be more productive by making a drawing, painting, collage etc… each day for 2011, no matter how small. I am participating in postaday2011 and this is my new picture diary. I welcome your comments…

    Hi Dawn,
    Thank you for popping over to my blog, I come back for a visit and a wee look around and after looking at your artworks I can say that I’m inspired! Wow!
    (NOT that I can draw birds like you, sadly not by a long shot) But I used to draw a lot some 10 years ago (before we had kids) and want to get my sketching mojo back.
    Question please: do you also draw other subjects too? (curious!) and do you draw the first sketches from life or from photos?
    I like how you show me works in progress from beginning to end, it helps me to remember how sketches evolve and build themselves into their final versions.
    I’ve subscribed to your blog so that I can keep admiring your beautiful birds :)

    • sketchjay says:

      Thank you so much for your kind words. I really like your blog. If you want to get back into your art you should start by sketching what is around you, it is so lovely. I would love to sketch from life but I do my sketches from photos that I find or take myself. I really appreciate your comments. I am not always pleased with my decisions to continue working on a drawing but am happy I can review the process too. Yes, I often work on other subjects and abstract ideas. I will keep checking your blog too. All the best!
      Dawn

  2. Cathy says:

    I really enjoyed looking at all your magpie sketches and thanks for sharing the progress. I started drawing a bit last year and enjoy it very much. I bought a book in Australia called Funky things to draw, probably more for kids but it gave me some confidence to start at least. I have posted some of it on my drawing blog http://cathycorner.wordpress.com/
    Cathy

    • sketchjay says:

      Hi Cathy,
      Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Magpies are one of my favorite birds although they are not in my region. I visited your blog too and you’ve made a great start, thank you for sharing! Keep going, it is so rewarding. The blog posting gives you a wonderful opportunity to capture your creative process. What I love most about drawing and painting is that I can remember everything I was thinking at the time, moments in time are immediately recalled when I revisit my work. Looking forward to looking at your new work. All the best,
      Dawn

  3. stilltitled says:

    Thanks for dropping by to read the bit on Audubon.

    What a great sequence of birds you’ve put together!

    A little Alexander Wilson. A little Audubon. A little Tomaselli, even.

  4. aloha Sketchjay Dawn – to echo words above, one of the things i find appealing about your work is the beauty with witch you touch paper. you make drawing appeal to a viewer in such a way that the viewer wants to draw. that’s a very special connection imo. outstanding. aloha.

  5. marlandphotos says:

    I like your header photo. Is that the Brooklyn Bridge? I might even post more pigeon photos today for you to enjoy!

    • sketchjay says:

      I took this photo from the Brooklyn Bridge looking across at the Manhattan Bridge. From this vantage point you are looking through the cables of the Brooklyn Bridge in the photo. I ride my bike across both bridges often from Brooklyn to Manhattan and I usually stop to snap a few quick photos along the way. Thanks for stopping by, if you post more pigeon (Rock Dove) photos I will certainly take a look, and maybe use them in my drawings! :)

  6. HUGH KEPETS says:

    Hi Dawn.
    Love your bird drawings. What a great idea to make and post a drawing-a-day for a year.
    And that amazing photo of the Manhattan Bridge…bravo!
    My best, Hugh

    • sketchjay says:

      Hi Hugh,
      Wow, Thank you so much. I am behind on my posts but am finally getting back to it! Your work is wonderful, I love your website, I like the still lifes which I don’t think I’ve seen before. All the best,
      Dawn

  7. Very nice work indeed, Dawn, not to mention your resume. This site is very impressive and I, too, enjoy the WIP process. Great idea. Thanks also for peeking at my blog and liking my post “Bryce Canyon, Utah”. Right now, I have a love for touching up my old slides and/or negatives because I have such a photo backup of years past. Retouching has become a great hobby. Anyway, keep up the great work.

    • sketchjay says:

      Thank you Laurie! Your work is great! It is nice to revisit photos and drawings – I can always remember exactly how I felt when the work was created , which is very nice. looking forward to seeing more of your photos.

  8. Jim says:

    Nice site. How do you get so many visitors? Good job.

  9. I like your sketches. Nice artwork.

  10. shellyfaber says:

    Thank you for visiting, and, reading my Poetry. Your sketches are very beautiful.

  13. maviedesign says:

    Loving the illustrations :) keep it coming!

  14. Hi Dawn, thank you for the like on my post “baby gators” I have enjoyed checking out your blog and your art – Steve

  15. Whoa! Gorgeous Work! Thanks for the like.

  16. stephglaser says:

    Dawn, I so empathize with you and how difficult it is to find time for art when you are in education. I have been a teacher for the past ten years, and a writer. I think blogs are a wonderful outlet for creativity and I really think it’s inspiring to see an artist make a commitment (no matter how small) to creating something! Thanks for sharing and thank you for stopping by Travel Oops and liking the Ever Green sign photo! Steph

  17. julzH says:

    Thanks for the like on my blog. Nice work!

    You draw these birds? That’s awesome! Your really good! :D

  19. Always nice when a fellow artist drops by…

  20. Thank you for visiting my blog–your visit helped me discover yours. You do lovely work.

  21. alesiablogs says:

    Awesome blog! thank you for visiting mine. I came to New York recently and absolutely loved it!. I hope to return soon. Love your work.

  22. miramiandmog says:

    Hi Dawn, so pleased you popped over to my blog to check it out because if you hadn’t, I likely wouldn’t have had the pleasure of coming across yours! What a great blog, I love your interest in patterns and imagery – fascinating. Look forward to reading more!

  23. Hi, Dawn. Nice to meet you. Appreciate your visit to my photography blog and the ‘like’ on my Mega Bite post. I share your love of birds and hope to someday soon get a lens so I can photograph them up close. :)

  24. hi Dawn! thanks for taking the time to visit and like my blog… nice work you have done!!!

  25. kestrelart says:

    Dear Dawn
    Thanks for calling by on my blog. I really like your apprach to art, the focus on corvids and printmaking. Working from life, crows are hard to capture. I think perhaps it is their liveliness, strength of purpose and intelligence that is hard to depict. I find i go for easier subjects, water fowl and herons. You have done a good job with your pctures. I shall follow.

    • sketchjay says:

      Thanks so much for visiting my blog! Your landscapes remind me of El Greco’s “View of Toledo” studies, very nice. I will be looking for your new posts. Corvids are special… aren’t they! Thanks again!

  26. tianrui says:

    Thanks for visiting my blog and liking the post…You have a unique expression which I really like :)

  27. Jim Brennan says:

    Hello Sketchjay, I saw you stopped by Rite2Wander and wanted to thank you. I began the blog last year as a link to my running blog at Rite2Run, but it’s been difficult keeping updated between magazine articles I write and a book I’m in the process of publishing. Now you’ve motivated me to refocus on my wandering blog, which I thank you because I have many travel stories and pictures I’d like to share, as well as an adventure I have planned for 2014. Thanks again, and safe travels.

    • sketchjay says:

      Yes, You have a great blog! I love murals and it is great to see all the great public art in Philadelphia that you’ve shared! New York has some nice murals as well and some great mosaics in our subway system. It is difficult to find time, I am struggling with that this year. Looking forward to seeing your future posts and learning about the 2014 adventure :)
      Thanks again for stopping by!

  28. Karen says:

    I have always wanted to write a children’s. book. Wringing about magpies, what could be better? How would you want to start? Drawings and then words? I would like to give it a try! If you are still interested, that is. I love your work!
    Kind regards,
    Karen

  29. Karen says:

    Sounds great!
    I will be looking for your email.
    Kind regards,
    Karen

  37. naomimgruer says:

    Thanks so much for checking out my lifestyle blog Bmore Energy, http://bmoreenergy.wordpress.com, and liking my photos of horses. I can relate to your “About”–I started my blog with as commitment to keep writing even as I pursue my long term writing goals.

  38. naomimgruer says:

    typo alert–I meant to say “as a commitment.” :)

  39. Thank you for liking my puppy pencil sketch. I enjoyed looking at your artwork too, especially the interesting pattern backgrounds behind your birds and horses. I hope you have a great New Year! :)

  40. After taking another look at your recent post, I guess I should have said “horse” instead of “horses.” I still like the pattern backgrounds in your work (which could also be called background patterns now that I think about it) and the rest of your illustrations. :)

    Hi Dawn, thank you for visiting my blog and liking my post. Cheers from a fellow printmaker!

  54. marycbloch says:

    Hi,
    Thanks for visiting my blog. I thought I’d check yours out as well. I love your use of pattern, it gives your images a simultaneous depth and flatness.
    I’m interested in why you chose painting over printmaking because your paintings look like prints (maybe that is not the case in person). I’d appreciate your thoughts on the merits of either medium!
    -Mary

    • sketchjay says:

      Hi Mary,
      Thanks for this!
      I actually love printmaking and haven’t really made a choice – I think it has been more about logistics and having enough time to put into printmaking. For Silkscreen, which I have the most experience with… much time is needed to print an edition. I love working on monoprints (screened) because they add a new perspective to my work(for me) and it is a great way to loosen up when my paintings and drawings become too tight or overworked. I think my years working in printmaking and etching studios has greatly influenced my painting and is largely responsible for my unending love of paper… I almost never paint on canvas. As for patterns… they follow me whereever I go.
      Thanks so much for stopping by!
      Dawn

  55. Thanks for stopping by wordifull.com and liking some of my work.. You drawings are simply gorgeous.

  56. Lovely work here to go with a lovely blog. Thanks for liking my own blog and in particular the recent post entitled “Another Tight Squeeze”. MM 🍀

  57. Thanks so much for checking out my blog, I appreciate it very much!
    I am loving what I see here on yours – beautiful and unique work! My Dad is a bird-watcher, I will have to share your art with him.

    • sketchjay says:

      Thanks so much! I am always interested in the perspective on my work of bird watchers as my work is not always true to the birds themselves… sometimes. I really appreciate your stopping by and sharing!All the best!

  61. Mihaella says:

    I’m glad you stopped to check out my blog. It’s always a pleasure to discover inspirational people like you. It’s so hard to have a job and still find time to do the things you love and remind yourself who you are. Except the good work you’re producing, you engage with words, too, you create beautiful pictures with your words. Great!

    • sketchjay says:

      Thank you Mihaella!
      I like your blog very much. It is so true – it is very difficult to find time for creativity when working. It is so important to keep at it though because it is all about who you are. Sometimes I am not inspired or motivated but will take 15 minutes to sharpen my pencils or cut paper. It is like I am reintroducing myself to my tools… it helps me stay in touch.
      Thanks again for your very kind message. All the best to you!!!

    I am really so pleased to discover yours. Almost nostalgic, as it brings me to my days of graphic design and those hunting a for that unique hand crafted papers.
    Thank you for coming by, for I could see your beautiful, unique world.

    Cheers

  65. jacquijay says:

    Thanks for stopping by my blog, which gave me the opportunity of seeing your paintings. I spend so much time photographing birds that it is really lovely to see artistic impressions of them … it sets me off thinking about them in an entirely different way.
    Best wishes
    Jacqui

  66. sophiesabina says:

    I love your work. Its nice to see someone else who works in education trying to find time for their own work. That was the meaning of mine. It makes me so much happier. Ill look forward to seeing your posts also which have already been inspiring. :)

    Thank you for liking my sketches. As a print maker I appreciate your skill and enjoy what I interpret as bird personalities with character.

    • sketchjay says:

      Oh so nice to hear from a fellow printmaker! You are spot on, most of my birds do represent a person or a characteristic of a person I know- many of them know who they are … Thank you for stopping by.

All the very best wishes from New York to you, Dawn

  76. HI there !
    I like je suis ici :)
    Thank you for stopping by my blog. I love to draw also. I should take your idea and post a drawing everyday. I’m sure it would be a great way for me to improve or become more aware of my drawing.

    • sketchjay says:

      Carla, You should definitely give yourself the challenge of posting each day – it is a great way to watch your own progression. I started out doing it anonymously which was also freeing. Thanks for stopping by. je suis ici is one of my favorites. All the best,
      Dawn

  77. Jane Lurie says:

    Hi Dawn, Thank your for following my photography blog, Jane’s Lens. I hope you are inspired. I, too, love birds…they can be challenging to photograph. Your artwork is wonderful and I am enjoying looking through your posts. Appreciate your visit.

      Hi Jane,
      Thank you for this. I do appreciate your photography! I do find my inspiration more often than not in photographs I find just perusing the web.

    I really like your style! Very nice. Thanks for visiting my blog. :)

  84. Thanks for the follow, madam!
    Your use of patterns is really interesting; I feel like I could get lost in them if I looked too long.
    If that happens, would the bird give me directions?
    And if he does, should I trust him?
    Either way, great work!

    Hi Sketchjay and thanks for the ‘follow.’ Having now poked around your own site a bit, I’ve just clicked Follow as well. Given your interest in nature and education about nature, you may already know about Evergreen Brick Works here in Toronto. If not, visit the site (http://ebw.evergreen.ca) to see how much they integrate art into their nature-in-the-city mandate. You can also visit an earlier post of mine, 15 Dec 2013, :Snow, More Snow & Evergreen,” where I talk about meeting EBW’s artist in residence and show some of the installations and the concepts behind the work.

      Dear Penny,
      Thanks so much for this… I was just in Toronto last September – I enjoyed it very much. I will check out Evergreen Brick Works now and look at your post- thank you for sharing. I hope you are staying warm.Dawn

  89. amkimberlin says:

    I love all the different iterations of birds. I recently gained a pretty intense interest in birds. I am an architecture student in Arkansas and as an abstract beginning to a project, we studied and drew birds. Each student chose a different bird. Mine was a red-tailed hawk. Your painting of texture and color remind me of what we were doing. The birds wings, at least some of them had extraordinary patterns, especially if you zoomed in on the feathers. Your patterns are a little different, but there is definitely a relationship. I also appreciate the sketching workflow. A lot can be discovered through a sketch. I also love your photos on your website. I envy your travels. I would love to see the Taj. Anyway, Just thought I would comment on your good and consistent work. Nice blogging! BTW, my bird drawings (analytical and surface pattern) are on my blog if you are interested.
