Alexis Fraser here, (a.k.a., Lipstick Lex). I am that lipstick artist you've hopefully heard so much about.
My biz and I are currently residing in Sarasota, Florida maintaining a sunshine state of mind in both my art and personal life. What can I say, I'm a gal that despises grey skies and a grey attitude.
My kiss print is my signature and it is found on every product I create. My mission is to create with love to spread the love and bring you art that lifts your mood and your spirit. Nice eh?
I began my art career as a traditional oil painter specializing in portraiture. In 2012 I was challenged to create a larger than life portrait of Marilyn Monroe utilizing a non-traditional approach which needed to correlate with the bombshell, sex symbol of the classic Hollywood period. After loads of brainstorming, the idea of creating with kiss prints was unleashed! Since then, I’ve painted a wide spectrum of portraits utilizing only lipstick and my kiss prints to create famous icons which people love, adore and feel reminiscent towards.
My work over the past few years has slowly developed and progressed in style, subject matter and finishing touches. Currently I’m creating content that makes me feel good. It’s reflective of an environment that I always yearned for and now live in today - I was born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago and lived the past 6 years in Toronto, Ontario. Needless to say, I have thick skin when it comes to the bone chilling temps, however, a warm climate was calling my name and I would lust to live somewhere tropical for as long as I can remember.
Fast forward 33 years and I’m finally living in shorts and tank top weather all year around! I’m totally in love with the costal lifestyle and I think it's obvious through my work.
I'm excited to be on this artreprenurial journey and look forward to exposing the world to my brand and my unique art!
Standing out in a sea of artists can be a challenge. Luckily for me, being a lipstick artist is a rarity - I mean, when was the last time you came across fine art created with lipstick? Well now you have and what a conversational piece it will be!
