Jana Sterbak (1955 - present) is a Canadian artist best known for her works constructed from meat. Two sculptures, Flesh Dress for an Albino Anorectic (1987) and Chair Apollinaire (1999), were both works whose primary medium was cured flank steak.

Sterbak was born in 1955 in Prague, Czechoslovakia, and immigrated to Montréal, Québec in 1968. She acquired her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1977 at Montréal's Concordia University.

Sterbak's works deal primarily with issues of power, sexuality, and control, and she also explores the relationship between humanity and the technology it has created.
