A Graphic Design graduate of Durham College of Applied Art and Technology, also studying at the University of Windsor BFA (Acting) program, Janice continued her interest in the arts, working professionally in theatre, graphic design, and sales, culminating in a launch of her own art publishing and design company in 1989. Janice currently works in Leadership Development at The Banff Centre as Program Manager for Aboriginal Leadership and Management.
She quickly developed a wide sales network for her original and published artwork throughout Canada and into the United States, garnering major corporate accounts and licensing opportunities while operating two commercial galleries in Burford and Stratford, Ontario in addition to her art and design studio. Her work can be found with over 800 commercial galleries and retailers across the world. Her entrepreneurial success and visioning led to an invitation as a delegate to the first ever 1999 Businesswomen's Summit between Canada and the U.S., as well as a nomination for the Rotman Women Entrepreneur of the Year. She has represented and published many Canadian artists, championing their intellectual property rights, and continues to be an advocate in entrepreneurial and business export issues for women. She has held membership in the Society of Tempera Painters, Organization of Women in International Trade (OWIT), and WEC and has participated on Team Canada Trade and Export missions to the United States.
