Montr?al and at the ?cole sup?rieure des arts d?coratifs de Strasbourg (France). She likes to explore different applications of her medium, whether it's illustrating books or designing textile. Janice is a three-time recipient of the Governor General's Award for Illustration, Canada's most prestigious literary prize.
