ABOUT

Luck and Lavender Studio (formerly Lucky Little Queer) was created by KJ Forman, a queer, non-binary feminist artist who works out of their home studio in Ottawa, Canada. They create visual art speaking to their LGBTQ experience that has a feminist and sex-positive focus. Luck and Lavender Studio’s goal is to create positive, affirmative pieces that can be used as a tool to connect and bond with other marginalized people in a way that celebrates lived experience and resilience.

 

KJ has been passionate about art since they were very young. As a survivor of child sexual abuse living with depression, anxiety and PTSD, KJ found that art has always been their coping mechanism, their means of survival, and their way of healing. Many of their early works fixate on their trauma and pain, but KJ’s work has since transformed into a continuing story of strength, hope and growth. Their current focus is on reclamation of their queer and trans identity as well as sexual expression. KJ works mainly with pen and ink and acrylic paint. They find themselves drawn to floral design, portraiture and bright colour.

 

KJ’s work features floral drawings combined with darker imagery like skulls and swords, showcasing feminist and 2SLGBTQ+ mantras. Luck and Lavender Studio is for babes who have something to say and want to show the world who they are.
