About Me

I am a modern female pin-up artist and mother to 2 little ones working in the Seattle area.  I paint pin-ups because I love all things beautiful and enjoy the same sense of playful sensuality I found in the old pin-up masters' works such as Elvgren.  I love nothing better than a good giggle and eyebrow raise when looking at an artwork and I strive to achieve the same result in my works. 

I think it is wonderful to be a woman and celebrate my femininity through my artwork.   I believe that what makes a woman beautiful lies not only on the outside, but must also radiate from the inside.  Therefore, I find my favorite subjects to paint are those women whose distinct personalities I already know or can easily see in their photos.  Often it is not your run of the mill super model that elicits a physical or emotional response but rather, the woman you see in your local coffee shop.  The mere fact that they are "real" and attainable makes their image more seductive and personal.  All of the women that I paint, including myself, are women who truly exist in the world (looking their best of course).  They are soft and supple, opinionated and bitchy, inviting and compassionate, strong and smart.  Most of all, they are not victims but instead, proud and unashamed of their sexuality.  To me, that is the ultimate form of feminism.

I am always looking for bright new faces and exciting beauties to work with so please feel free to contact me and see if we can collaborate on a painting.  My website is www.jessicaspinups.com if you'd like to see more of my work and learn more about me.  Thanks!
