Jessie Edelstein is a visual artist from Long Island, New York currently based in LA. Her work focuses on the themes of technology and queer identity. She believes that people should have autonomy over themselves in order to present their inner self on the outside and carve out their own path in the world.
Her first major project was her early 2000’s inspired drag character “Virgo Couture.” She started performing under this persona in 2018 and retired the character as of late 2020.
She is currently developing an experimental music project called Jessie.Mp3 which combines music, visuals, and lip sync performance. She plans to release her first EP in Spring 2021.
Jessie graduated from SUNY New Paltz in 2019 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Visual Art. Her artwork has been featured in a variety of exhibitions in the Hudson Valley, Brooklyn, and Long Island. Her makeup work can be seen in publications such as Milk Magazine.
