I am a person who finds creative solutions to problems! Brain works 24/7 – I have 10 million ideas and only a few are really great – but when they are – WOWEE watch out!
I have always had a love and passion for art in any form. Luckily creativity & art does take ANY form.
I knit felted purses, I bead with Tahitian pearls & leather (way expensive!) I dabble in gobs ‘o things – but have been steadily working as a Shoe Artist. Last year I decided to add purses/totes/handbags to the mix.
I have a website www.clpstudio.com (can I mention it here?) If not, surely someone will tell me otherwise, and I will plead mea culpa. My point in mentioning this is that I am very customer focused and have – through trial and error – learned about the best products and techniques to use.
My hand painted shoes are all custom work and I have customers with over 25+ pair! So you know they are happy.
For example – with all my paints I use a special professional Leather Acrylic Paint. It has a “flex additive” so that it doesn’t crack or peel. In addition, I prepare leather verrrry thoroughly to accept the paint. I have really become a leather painting expert – if I may be so bold as to say.
Enjoy my stuff – but more importantly – enjoy art!
