Today's world is turning into an Eco-Friendly environment and Eco-Art is playing a fundamental role in the way people are recycling.
Grant Maniér (maun-yay), a young talented Eco-Artist, living with autism, has incorporated conservationism into his work.
Reduce, reuse, and recycle is the foundation for Grant's art. Grant creates stunning art collages using thousands of pieces of torn/cut shaped and textured paper from recycled calendars, magazines, posters, puzzles and more.
He is leading the way for Eco-art awareness by bringing his visual art exhibit and demonstration into schools and organizations, receiving awards and recognition for his outstanding educational outreach program to children and adults.
His art has raised thousands of dollars supporting many great causes (therapy, camps, social groups, and more).
Artist and Author
Grant Maniér and Julie Coy
Over the years, Julie has watched Grant inspire and shift perceptions of how people stereotype special needs individuals. Grant's journey inspired Julie to write a children's book about Grant, but with a twist...he's giraffe! Based on Grant's Eco-original Jigsaw Giraffe artwork you will be amazed how a story of a giraffe and Grant Maniér are one in the same.
Grant and Julie teach children and adults a unique way to create sustainable art which contributes to keeping our earth green and clean. Our hands-on activity program sparks the imagination towards Eco-Art, by combining a hands-on art activity and a story of a giraffe, born different, but follows his passion to become an artist, despite his differences.
