About the artist

Janet Little JeffersThrough the viewfinder of a camera, Janet explores the unexpected and unexamined details of the natural and manmade world. Her photographs capture intriguing glimpses that may surprise the viewer, inviting a closer look at subjects that normally attract little attention.

An avid artist since childhood, Janet’s creative pursuits led to a career as an award-winning graphic designer specializing in publications, and she has been awarded for work in the interior design field as well. While earning her B.A. from Towson University and an M.A. in Publications Design from University of Baltimore, she also worked as an announcer for radio stations in the Baltimore-Washington area, including the notable free-form music stations WHFS-FM, WRNR-FM, and most recently, WTMD-FM. But ever since picking up her first SLR camera — a trusty Pentax K1000 — during her freshman year of college, photography has been her enduring passion.

Janet now photographs in digital format, using Nikon gear and a Mac-based digital darkroom in the historic Bromo Seltzer Tower in downtown Baltimore. Her photography has been featured on book and CD covers, in films, galleries and private collections. In 2008 she was signed to international publishers Wild Apple Graphics. She works with interior designers and architects to place work in commercial and residential projects, from simple framed images hung on a wall to large permanent installation pieces.

She resides near Annapolis, Maryland, with her husband and their three dogs, a husky mix and two pugs. When she is not behind a camera, she enjoys running, yoga, reading, and travel. In the fall of 2010 she took a two-month solo road trip across the USA and back, and the resulting “Teardrop Trailer Tour” exhibit can currently be viewed on the 12th floor of the Bromo Seltzer Tower.
