About The Artist

Jayne Carney Photographer

Jayne Carney is an award winning photographer and digital artist currently based in North Carolina.

I started developing my skills as a photographer and digital artist in 2005. While starting out as a lifestyle family photographer, I discovered my love for nature and wildlife photography and transforming my photos into artwork using textures, filters and my Wacom board for digital painting.

I've lived in MA, FL and now NC, which has given me so many opportunities to enjoy the wildlife, birds and beautiful scenery whenever I find the time to get outside.
