ARTIST | FOUNDER
Meet Alexis Fraser (aka Lipstick Lex). Most folks call her Lex or Lexi.
Lex, knew from a very young age that a career in the creative industry was her calling. While she struggled with the false belief up until her late 20s that she would never survive as an artist for a living, she was determined to change that mindset and find success in her passion for creativity.
This is when she turned to lipstick! Lex knew that if she wanted to get ahead in a saturated art industry that she would need to differentiate herself.
After dabbling in a multitude of unconventional mediums and methods, utilizing lipstick and her physical kisses in her art became an obvious choice. It has since blossomed into a brand that promotes everything that Lex stands for – love, self-love, beauty, affection, joy, positivity, and personal empowerment.
The kiss print is her signature symbol and now goes beyond just the canvas as she dives into fashion design with her signature shoes, customized jean jackets, and jewelry!
CO-FOUNDER | CONCEPTUAL ARTIST
Josh was born in Toronto, and moved to the Chicago area with his family when he was 14 years old. It was in high school where Josh and Alexis first met. At 16 they were inseparable, and are now proud high school sweethearts, still married 20 years later!
In 2017, they made the move to Sarasota, Florida and took the leap of faith to officially build the Lipstick Lex brand.
As the cofounder – and Lex’s life companion, constant support system, motivational ass-kicker, and co-leader of the pack, – he is also an artist in his own right as he aids in creative ideas and solutions and is the builder/craftsman behind Lex’s sculptural pieces. As a professional and highly-skilled contractor, he is Lex’s go-to for building custom panels and her 3 dimensional/sculptural surfaces.
