        Grant's Eco-Art -         PAINT BY PAPER.....RECYCLED ARTWORK
     My name is Grant Manier, I am an author, artist, and special needs advocate.
 I have autism, I consider some of my autism a gift, having autism is not a bad thing, my disability has become my ability to contribute to changing the earth's environment.
  
IT'S NOT WHAT I CAN'T DO...IT'S WHAT I CAN DO!
       
   
 I Paint by Paper
I reduce, reuse, and recycle magazines, calendars, wallpaper, posters, food wrappers, puzzles and more.  Each work of art contains 1000 to over 6000 cut or
torn
pieces of recycled paper. 
I use cool colors,cool shapes and cool textures... 
I call my art "COOLAGES"
  
Grant Manier (maun-yay), who at a very young age developed an obsessive repetitive behavior for tearing paper, by his early teens began collecting and recycling as a affordable way to continue his passion.
Grant is emerging as one of the most intriguing and captivating young artist today. His Eco-friendly artwork is capturing the attention of his community, gaining national media, he is honored with awards for his eco-impressionism and outstanding contribution to the autism and special needs community.
