Jill DeGroff is an itinerant saloon artist who uses the street and cafes as her studio, portraying artists, barflies, musicians, writers, and other denizens of the night. Much of her work pays tribute to luminaries in the food and beverage industry and has gained a following among craft cocktailians around the world, over 400 of whom she has caricatured.

Jill is the author of LUSH LIFE; Portraits from the Bar , a collection of portraits and stories from the colorful characters she has met over the years. Jill lives in New York and is married to award-winning author and mixologist Dale DeGroff, whom she credits for getting her started on this exciting journey.
