Joanna Grant (aka Joanna Banana) is a Canadian artist who, for the past 15 years, has been focusing on creating one-of-a-kind mixed media and collage art from recycled materials. She draws inspiration from her love of music, nature and the study of metaphysics. Bold color and heartfelt quotes are hallmarks of her work, as are unusual found objects. “If I can keep even a small amount of stuff out of our landfills and turn it into something to treasure, I feel I’m making a difference,” she says.
When not creating her fun and funky art, she enjoys travel, motorcycling and sports and divides her time between her desert homes in the Okanagan Valley (Canada) and Arizona. She is a published artist and her work is found in collections worldwide.
