This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following, submitted October 2004, is based on information from the artist.

Joseph F. De Martini was born in 1927 in San Francisco, California and began drawing and painting at an early age. He attended the University of San Francisco.

His earliest influence was the illustration work of George Petty and Rolf Armstrong, but afterseeing works by Alberto Vargas in the 1940s, he discovered his calling in the art of pin-up illustration. He met Alberto Vargas in 1951 and began a close friendship that lasted until Vargas' death in 1982. Over the years Vargas remained a source of inspiration for Joe.

In the 1950s, De Martini attended workshops with Thomas Leighton in San Francisco though he considers himself largely self taught in the techniques of watercolor and airbrush.

De Martini's work includes fashion illustration, calendar girls, and pin-ups. He maintains a studio in the San Francisco Bay Area and continues to draw and paint.
