Maryanna Hardy is originally from Saskatchewan, and she is currently calling Toronto home. She has exhibited her drawings at Casa del Popolo, Headquarters Gallery and My Hero Gallery in Montreal, and her most recent solo show was held at 107 Shaw Gallery in Toronto. She’s designed gig posters and worked on visual arts collaborations through her former screenprinting shop named Detention such as the YPF Collective’s recent showing at Osheaga. So I’ve Been Told is her first book.
