“I was lucky to find Jeremiah, my husband,” Jen says, “because he understands my work and my lifestyle. He’s a hot-rodder, too, so he knows what it’s about. In the summer, I can be at a show for five days then home for just a day or two, then off to another one. It works for us—he’s restoring a truck, and I paint.”
Jen has a lot of interests, mostly around cars, art and music. Before she was striping seriously, she started shooting photos as reference material to draw from. When she stopped drawing, she kept shooting automotive-related photos.
“It’s kind of funny, because my life has several tracks happening at once. I stripe cars. I shoot photos for magazines, and those people may not know that I pinstripe. I swing dance a lot—it’s a big part of my life.
