‘The Taster Show’ 2019

From the 1st April until the 14th April, 2019, six new pieces of my work were shown at the Sam Scorer Gallery in Lincoln. A large, well-lit space to the side of the castle that’s definitely with the up-hill trek! The two week exhibition featured work from 6 other (fantastic) Lincolnshire artists, who had also never displayed at the gallery before.

March Meet the Maker 2019

This year I found an Instagram challenge aimed at creative individuals through the month of March. I was really enjoying other people’s contributions so thought I’d add my own. Here’s the prompt list:

The Nature Trail 2019

Earlier this year I was asked whether I’d be able to assist in painting some animals onto wooden slices, as part of a Nature Trail for Riseholme Park Farm. I had a couple of days to do this along with organiser, Alex Foxley-Johnson, for their March event: Lambing Sunday.

Lincoln Pride // 2018 // Cheeky, Cheeky

Lexy Foxley-Johnson

It was my first visit to Lincoln Pride this year, despite living in this lovely, little city for the best part of a decade.

I’ve probably said this before but I love pride. I love how excited everyone gets, the sense of community, how accepting people are. I love having a little dance and the smiling faces.

This year, Lincoln Pride also landed on Linc-Con, which meant that my girl and I got dressed up and attended both. Rose went rather fantastically as a gender bending Marty McFly. She also edited a video about her cosplay which you can check out on her instagram.

I cosplayed as Wynonna Earp with a handmade peacemaker (thank you, industrial strength glue).

After we visited our favourite Lincoln haunt The Angel Coffee House, we headed down to the Brayford Waterfront to check out the main stage.

Gender-bending Cosplay

Since getting into cosplay, one thing I’ve found frustrating is that most of my favourite heroes, or characters that I feel a strong connection with, are male. I had so much strife trying to find female roles that I could relate to (a lot of leading ladies seem to be overtly sexual or mythical). Then I realised -and a lot of this had to do with the fact that Dr. Who regenerated as a woman, that in a lot of sci-fi there are alternate timelines and universes, and that I could certainly use this to my advantage. Cue gender-swapping some of my dream idols!

Inktober 2018

And just like that, it’s my favourite month again. October: 31 days of gorgeous colours, drawing, dressing up and carving giant vegetables, all on a mandatory sugar-high. But back to that drawing part… since it’s the time of year where I need to transpose all my subjects into ink, I thought I’d do some ‘odes to my favourite artists’ each with their own style. This was a great warm up -and a reminder of how much harder it is to work using solid lines for a variety of gradients (instead of being able to vary pressure or water something down). Tattoo artists, I salute you.

‘Forces of Nature’

August 2018 was the first time I’d had a solo exhibition for years and so I was rather nervous about which work to show. I had booked all of the space available at the delightful independent coffee house on Freeschool Lane, Lincoln, the Angel Coffee House. The exhibition got to be on display for the whole month and I really couldn’t recommend better hosts!
