Working from her studio in Bicester, Janine Kilroe has created images for the last 30 years, initially as an editorial advertising photographer commissioned by many international blue chip companies and for the past nine years focusing on creating a truly unique style of hand painted fine art photography. Janine’s craft conveys a captured unique moment in time. Inspired by what makes Britain: Its nature, landscapes and coastal environments, Janine’s view of the world, an unseen layer peeled back. Her work has been exhibited in galleries throughout the UK, including the Royal West Academy, the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition and The Saatchi Gallery, London.  Her signature artwork is to print black and white fine art photographs onto watercolour paper and then selectively reintroduce colour back into the image by hand painting using watercolour pencils, washes and acrylic inks.
