I have recently transitioned from painting canvases to painting and dying pointe shoes. A close friend of mine gave me a bag of old pointe shoes in 2009. They sat in my studio...waiting. One night this past December, those shoes slammed into the forefront of my imagination (just before I was going to bed) and they had Mehndi designs all over them. Every time I go to create on these shoes, God shows me designs, so it's been a blast to co-create with Him! I have a deep passion for ballet. There is so much beauty in pointe, and I love having the opportunity to create these!
I began painting these and ran out of the used shoes.Just recently, I went to visit dance studios to see if they had any old pointe shoes their students were willing to donate (I love working with the old shoes because of the history they have to them). One of the studios has a store-front attached and the woman generously donated 17 pairs of New Bloch pointe shoes! This is the fourth of those pairs to be designed.
These shoes are for decorative purposes only.
