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

Born in Prague, Czechoslovakia, Sterback 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. Her Standard Lives - Abridged was displayed in the centre of Newcastle-upon-Tyne in September-October 1990.
