"There were just a handful of truly excellent students in my class, and Janine was one of them. She never lost her integrity, her honesty or her spirit. Just a week before she left us, she was still talking about her next exhibition, scheduled for May,'' he said.Ms. Janiine Mongillat's work which hangs in major galleries and collections around the world was greatly influenced by India and her association with Mr. RazaMs. Janine Mongillat's collages, paintings and sculptures are often inhabited by a playfulness that belie the seriousness of her quest.
