Jane Ann Hart, Artist
Jane Ann has an undergraduate degree in Creative Arts from Rosemont College, Rosemont, PA. An avid painter and print maker while attending college, she found that she was unable to keep up with her artwork after completing her degree. She decided to purchase a camera to express her creativity. Jane Ann believes that the camera allows for the creative expression of her surroundings. Jane Ann “freeze frames” moments in time and believes that every photograph “captures a feeling and tells a story”.
“Photography is my passion – capturing a feeling, a look, an emotion, a special moment in time…….. The Jersey Shore has a natural palette of many rich and beautiful colors that take your breath away, especially at sunrise and sunset during every season of the year. The Shore also has a plethora of unique subjects, such as a mother egret that returns every spring to have her babies in the bay in front of my studio. Sunset has always been my favorite time of the day and living at the Jersey Shore affords me the opportunity to view, enjoy and capture that “great production brought to you by God every evening!”
In addition to matted, framed and canvas photographs, Jane Ann also creates unique handmade Note Cards featuring photographs of the Jersey Shore area. Jane Ann has been making these creative Note Cards for over 35 years. Each card is hand printed, signed by the artist and each image that adorns the Note Cards is an original photograph taken by the artist. All Note Cards are blank on the inside, allowing you to customize the message that is appropriate to the situation for which it will be used. The artist also creates Customized Note Cards for customers featuring their business logo and contact information as well as Custom Note Cards for individuals with unique quotes and personal information. Sending custom, unique, signed, hand printed, original note cards to communicate with clients or special friends & family, will make you stand out in a very distinctive way!
Jane Ann’s photographs have been exhibited and sold at art shows and exhibits throughout the Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey Shore regions, including the Atlantic City Arts Center, Brigantine Historical Museum, the Noyes Museum, the Brigantine Art Walk, the Brigantine Farmers Market, “The Wine Tasting At the Shore” Scholarship Fundraiser and she has been the featured “Artist of the Month” several times in the Artist Showcase Display Case in the Brigantine Community Center. Her Photographs, Note Cards and Design Collection of Gifts, Home Decor & Masks, can be found in gift shops and specialty stores from Ventnor to Brigantine, NJ.
