Beans of John, also known as Kelley Benes, is an artist based out of Los Angeles. Her work is deeply inspired by nature, science, and the human body. Over the years, she has become an avid collector of natural objects and artifacts which now serve as inspiration for her work. Combining her fascination with strange objects, patterns in nature, and the human body led to the collection of work, Beans of John. On top of making unsettling objects made up of teeth, shells, eggs, eyes, and human hair, Kelley is also a practicing taxidermist & forest school instructor.
