Janet Ledger was born in Northampton in 1934. She studied painting at the Northampton School of Art.

Janet Ledger’s art work has been compared with L S Lowry. However like Lowry, who she met, Janet’s misty industrial landscapes and paintings of people have a marvellous feeling for atmosphere and colour combined with a strong sense of observation of life. Few subjects escape her gaze, whether it be on holiday or at work, children at play or at school, the washing on the line, a city skyline at night, or the corner shops and back streets populated by buses, dogs, lamp posts, the occasional drunk or shoppers with prams. Humour and pathos in her paintings evokes another dimension, often providing the viewer a momentary smile.

Janet Ledger paintings have great appeal and can be found in many public and private collections, these include those of HRH Princess Margaret, The Coal Board, Marks and Spencer, McDonalds, Mowlem and National Westminster Bank. Several pop musicians have bought her work.

She was made an honorary citizen of Dallas in 1985 after a successful exhibition “Best of Britain”. Janet Ledger’s ability to capture the atmosphere and colour of a scene has made her work highly collectable.
