Having had a career in IT, Janey was an early convert to digital photography, and bought one of the first digital cameras in 1998. A few years later she sold her business and was able to combine her love of the sea with her growing passion for photography.
Experimenting with a number of techniques she strived to produce an “impression” of the landscape, and was awarded her Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society in 2008 with a panel of images taken in East Anglia.
More recently she has become fascinated with documentary photography, and is currently working on a project looking at areas in the UK where a major industry has fallen into decline, and the effect that has had on the community.
Janey was invited to join Arena in 2016. She is also a member of the Focus Group, regularly exhibiting in their annual exhibition.
