Welcome to Blush of Dawn, a site for literature, the arts, and living. I’m Jade, a writer and painter. I’ve written two poetry books, Moonflower (2018) and A Little Honey Sweetens the Flame (2021).


Art: Each of my paintings are sealed with a light coat of semi-matte varnish, which gives the paintings a finished look and keeps them preserved over time.

The weekend, Jun 2 – 4, ‘23, Foxboro MA, at The Gallery, my original acrylic on canvas paintings will be on display, available to purchase, and I will be there in person.

Writing: I am writing my first novel in the fantasy genre.

Like a newspaper-radio show, this blog tells of my little everyday adventures with books and art, antique and from our time, as recommendations of authors and books for the reader, along with literary history and creative prompts for the writer. It is mostly illustrated with my own photos. I share progress on my own work and will announce a new book or event.

As a certified yoga teacher and having practiced yoga, meditation, and mindfulness for about 15 years, I write about wellness and relaxation, like planning a day or simple design for a comforting, inspiring place to create, work and live, for the artist and for anyone.

I am originally from Brooklyn, New York where I’d found my love for the written word. I graduated magna cum laude from Brooklyn College with a degree in English Literature. I also studied Creative Writing and Philosophy at Brooklyn College. My poetry has appeared in a handful of print and online magazines and journals.

I am mostly human and very mythical too. YouTube: @jadenicoleyoga. Blog Shows: @jadenicolebeals. I live in southeastern Massachusetts. Maiden name: Zirino.

  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.
