Joanne Greenbaum (born 1953, New York City, United States) is an artist based in New York City.


Greenbaum received her BA in 1975 from Bard College in New York.


Art critic John Yau writes of Greenbuam's process: "Working within a smaller surface area, and in her own words, doing 'just one thing' at a time, Greenbaum paints incrementally, adding a new layer upon whatever preceded it. She uses oil and acrylic, as well as magic marker, and doesn’t scrape anything away. In this regard, the paintings are geological, with each layer forming a distinct strata."[1]

Greenbaum received a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2001.[2]
