Jackie Martin grew up in Chicago and left the Midwest to pursue a BA at Arizona State University in Journalism and English Literature. She currently works as a writer and enjoys swing dancing and reading in her free time.  Her background in modeling extends to free-form modeling for photographer Chris Raboin of the White Chrysanthemum Studio in Phoenix and vintage pin-up photos highlighting her love of the forties and fifties culture and style, with photographer Chuck Molter.

Pin-up girls were popular in the 1940s and 1950s.  Pin-up girls were usually models or actresses who were considered sex symbols.  A pin-up girls mass-produced photo was displayed informally and was a part of pop culture.  Most of these photos were mass-produced through calendars, magazines, or newspapers.  One of the most popular pin-up girls was Betty Grable, an American dancer, singer, and actress.  Her images were known to be posted in the lockers of G.I.s during World War II.  Marilyn Monroe was another popular pin-up during the 1950s.
