Jill Greenberg (born July 10, 1967) is an American photographer and Pop artist. She is known for her portraits and fine art work that often features anthropomorphized animals that have been digitally manipulated with painterly effects.

She is also highly recognized for her distinct, and stylized photography of celebrities including well known performers such as Gwen Stefani, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Clint Eastwood. She is also known for inserting her own strong opinions into her work. In reference to her work Greenberg states “They’re portraits and they’re personal but there’s a little twist going on. An edge.”
Greenberg was born in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and grew up in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan.
