Janelle Wisehart, born in 1983, in Farmersville, Ohio, is a mixed media artist working with drawing, painting and photography. Her pieces contain a mash-up of characters depicted through ambiguous cartoon like creatures, sexual references, cultural stereotypes, alter ego doubles and anthropomorphic objects. She draws inspiration from many sources: architecture and interior design, culture from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s, as well as from artists like Alexander Calder.

She got her MFA from the University of South Florida in 2014 and her BFA from a Valdosta State University in 2007. Wisehart’s themes are based on her bear-crotch alter ego character, which involve both actual and imagined experiences. She is interested in the portrayal of the “self” and the “other self”, the mirror images of good and evil, original and imitation, appearance and reality. In 2011 Wisehart opened her Esty shop where she makes the colorful and graphic jewelry.

She is currently based in Tampa, Florida.
