Jolen_martin_image_1.JPGJolene Martin has lived in the Houston area for 4 years. She was born and raised along the shores of Lake Erie in Western New York. She attended Edinboro University of Pennsylvania and studied Art Education. After leaving college, Jolene apprenticed under Jeremy Stine of Flesh & Blood Tattoo in Linesville, PA and began a career in Body Art. Besides tattooing, she has a background in a variety of different art forms including but not limited to Portraiture, Signage and Jewelry Fabrication. Realism, New School, Oriental and Latin American Art styles are all major influences in her own work.

For the 2nd year in a row, Jolene will be participating in a street painting festival and she is looking forward to it with great anticipation, excitement and honor as she regards this as an important bridge to connect those who would not necessarily be exposed to the wonderful world of art and its ability to stimulate thoughts & emotions.
