Jen Lightfoot has been working as a gallery artist and freelance illustrator for almost a decade. She specializes in portraiture, horror illustration, fantasy illustration, and pinup girl illustration using colored pencils, ink, graphite, charcoal, and acrylic. Jen received her MFA from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts in 2013, and in 2007 received her BFA in Illustration from Moore College of Art and Design.

Jen has exhibited her surreal, creepy artwork at galleries internationally including La Luz De Jesus (Los Angeles, CA), Gristle Art + Tattoo Gallery (Brooklyn, NY), La Bodega Gallery (San Diego, CA), Future Gallery (Lake Orion, MI), and Penumbra Art Gallery (Loures, Portugal).

She has created CD/album art and band merchandise for musicians such as singer-songwriter Rachael Sage, thrash metal band Scareho, classical composer Michael Burns, indie-rocker John Cusumano, and blues musician Jim Stephens. She has also done book illustrations and book cover art for fantasy author Warren Stallworth and horror author Victoria Boynton.

In addition to exhibiting her work in art galleries and working as a freelance illustrator, Jen has had her work published in the tattoo and art book series Out of Step Books, the pop surrealism magazine Catapult, and the Canadian erotic arts magazine IN MY BED.
