So fun and sexy, and I love piano, so I had to buy. They'll be part of a costume I'm creating.
Just a lover of art and shoes
I fell into creating hand-painted shoes almost accidentally, which is often the best way to start a new project.. I was home from college on break, with nothing to do but sit around and stare at my feet. It occurred to me that you can get shoes made out of canvas, which is the perfect surface for painting. I decided to create some wearable art, and soon compliments led to requests, which led to my Etsy shop.
Catherine LaPointe is a freelance illustrator, designer, and lover of shoes. You can see more of her work online at www.CatherineLaPointe.com.
I am a New York-based freelance illustrator and designer, specializing in book covers. Illustration is the only thing I can imagine still wanting to work at when I am 30, 40, even 80 years old. I plan on never retiring.
