Her work is available through galleries and design professionals for both residential and commercial applications. She has recently relocated to the Portland area from Palm Springs and will continue to work with designers and their clients in both Palm Springs and the Portland area. Janes is the current past president of the Interior Design Society of Palm Springs (IDS) and a current member of both the Los Angeles/Palm Springs chapter of ASID as well as the Oregon chapter.
