J. J. Maslin

I have been professionally schooled and trained in New York Art schools since the 3rd grade in downstate New York City.  Have won Art Awards in 6th Grade Art School while living in Brooklyn, New York. 

 I am a graduate from the well known State University of New York, Fashion Institute of Technology.  I had so much fun learning to polish my skills as the teachers would say to all of the students!  There I studied Fashion Illustration, Art History, Pattern Making, Tailoring, and Industrial Fashion Sewing.  While attending F.I.T., I won 1st place in the "Talon Zipper Contest" for fashion illustration and design. 

 I am also listed in "Who's Who in the World" under my Mother’s screen name, Mamie Davis (aka Denise Davis), the 2015 32nd edition. My mother is an actress of stage and screen.

Now I am living in Binghamton, New York, and I am drawing again. I really do love to draw and this is the first love, then the sewing and other crafts I do as well to do when I need to get away from the drawing for a bit to come up with new ideas to draw. I do love drawing people, fashion models/style and profiles. Using pen, pencils, ink and some pastels at this time is what I am feeling to use at this time.
