"The inspiration for my work is found in the temporal world, in both organic and man-made environments. Especially in the patterns created by humankind and those formed by nature."Janie Milstein (b. Dallas, TX) received her BA in Literary Arts from the University of Texas, Dallas. She continued her academic studies in the Fine Arts and Design at El Centro College, Brookhaven College, both in Dallas.
