Welcome to Blush of Dawn, a site for literature, art, and living.

I’m Jade, I write poetry, fiction, draw, and paint.

I’ve published two full-length poetry collections in print, Moonflower (2018), a gentle book about faith, creativity, and self-doubt, and A Little Honey Sweetens The Flame (2021), which centers on passion, connection, admiration, and the creating and embracing of oneself and one’s surroundings.

I am currently writing my first novel, fantasy about 20 pgs written.


Art Events

Current – April 23, ‘23: My painting “In Rhythm” is on display and available for purchase at the Morini Gallery for Abstractions. My painting, “Mountain Peak” has also been selected and ready to display at the Gallery. 888 S Main Street, 10 am – 4 pm M – F, Mansfield, MA 02048.

June 2 – 4, 2023, full weekend. The Gallery in Foxboro, MA. A selection of my paintings will be on display and available for purchase.


In the style of an antique newspaper-radio show, this blog tells of my little everyday adventures with books and art, from the past and from our time, along with a little life history of authors, places, and time periods. It is also mostly illustrated with my own photos, with creative prompts for the writer, and recommendations of books for the reader.

As a certified yoga teacher and having practiced it along with meditation for many years with a focus on relaxation and stress relief, I incorporate ideas for relaxation and wellness into the blog for the artist and for anyone.

I am mostly human and very mythical too.

I live in southeastern Massachusetts overlooking a small forest.

  2. Well done on getting your work officially published! 🙂 It’s a long anxious road until you tie the knot on your finished book, but so worth it in the end 🫂

    1. Thank you Tom! for your congrats 😀 There’d been uncertainty awhile, but for me the most important thing was writing (or creating), and following what felt meaningful: wanting to share somehow and enjoying books in general myself.
