Janelle Beasley is a collage artist from Bloomington, Indiana. She responds to the beauty and absurdity in vintage printed materials, domestic objects, and social guidance films. Using found images as personal symbols, she makes work about the psychology of idealism and morality. Janelle received a BFA in Printmaking from Indiana University in 2013 and is now the Works on Paper Preparator at the Eskenazi Museum of Art. She would like to dedicate her art endeavors to utopian feminist Charlotte Perkins Gilman and Dada photomontage pioneer Hannah Höch.

During her time at Elsewhere, Beasley created Velvet Retreat.
