A short bio and a portrait of Jayne Mansfield one of the most glamourous acctresses of the 50s and 60s,

A portrait of the beautiful Jayne Mansfield

Jayne Mansfield born Vera Joyce Palmer was born in 1933 in Pennsylvania U.S.A, she was one of the leading sex symbols of the 50s, working on Broadway and in Hollywood, The films she starred in always showed off her platinum blonde hair, her hourglass figure and her cleavage revealing costumes,
In her later career she was a Playboy playmate of the month, and appeared in the magazine several times, she was married three times, firstly to Paul Mansfield, then she married the 1955 Mr Universe Miklos Hargitay, who was the father of her daughter Mariska Hargitay, who plays Olivia Benson in the series Law & Order Special Victims Unit,
Her third marriage was to Matt Cimber, her life came to an untimely end in a car accident in 1967, where rumours say she was decapitated,

Portrait

Obviously she was a very beautiful woman I had to draw a portrait of her, this portrait took me around five or six hours to do in graphite pencil, hope you like it and if you do please don’t hesitate to leave me a comment, Thank you.

There's a whole lot more to say about this lovely woman. And you really can't talk about her without at least mentioning her involvement with the occult.
