Drawn to incongruous unions of both concept and materials, she often works on projects that include photography, printmaking. painting, etc.. to unite and ignite positive action. Grant draws inspiration from the explicit and mundane. She has the ability to resist cynicism in her (often irreverent) social commentary.

In 2015 she went back to school to learn digital imaging, and received an AS in Photography and Printmaking from SUNY NCC.

Grant has been co-curating Cheap Art Parties in Brooklyn, LES, East Village, Port Washington, and Hudson, NY since 1995. These events are based on the Bread and Puppet's Cheap Art Manifesto.

Eliesha continues doing commissions and freelance work, curating shows, participating in art projects, exhibits, and community volunteering www.PlantaRowforthehungry.org, and The Science Museum of Long Island.
