“Hi there! My name is Lindsay Soulsby Johnson – the brain & hands behind Soulsby Art! I was born & raised in Little Rock, Arkansas where I graduated from Little Rock Central High School – GO TIGERS! After high school I attended the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, where I have remained since 2010. I started college as an art major but long story short – that didn’t work out. I ended up perusing two degrees in other avenues. To the art teacher that thought I had no talent & hated my work – I hope you stumble across my exhibit one day! Luckily, I’ve never been one to seek approval of others & I love my art for wreaking havoc being everything but normal. Perfection is imperfection! Art has always been a passion of mine. I’ve done art since I could hold a pen in my hand. With the encouragement & continuous support of my best friend / worlds best husband, my family, & my fur baby Mulligan I’ve been allowed to embrace being a professional mess maker! My art ranges across a wide spectrum of styles & price points. I strive to make art something that everyone, despite socioeconomic circumstances, can have the luxury of owning a real piece of art in their home. For everyone that’s been told they couldn’t do it, they weren’t good enough, or who have ever been put down & doubted themselves – this is for you!”
Beau Jones, local artist from Jonesboro, AR uses an abstract approach to his art in a way that not only makes it unique, but a statement piece to hang on a wall. He uses a variety of vibrant colors against soft neutrals to create very loose, abstract faces called BEAUTOX. The idea behind the faces is a take on what society today sees as beauty, and how we get Botox, lip injections, fillers, etc in our faces to change ourselves in a way that changes how we previously were. The crown represents perfection and how we seem to glorify those who have these procedures done. The face is very exaggerared to show how toxic it really is to us and how changing our looks are so important to us in order to be perfect and have a social presence today. Aside from his face paintings, he loves to work on various other techniques and abstract styles in different forms. Beau is currently represented through M2 Gallery in Little Rock, and participates in local art events/festivals in surrounding areas. He has been featured in local magazines such as Occasions, Premiere Magazine, and most recently At Home Arkansas, based in Little Rock.
