It all started with a shoe…

This is the excerpt for your very first post.

In 2013, I was walking in the ditch alongside a small road in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. At the time, I had two part-time jobs and barely making rent. As I was making my way towards to mall I came across an object that would change the course of my life – a shoe; a┬áBanana Republic size 7 high heel, to be exact. Liking the look of the shoe, I picked it up and took it home with me. My roommate asked why I was carrying around a single shoe. My response: “It’s art.” That summer I transformed the damaged discarded shoe into a fully beaded work of art.

The Shoe (2013) has been showcased at the Emily Carr House (Victoria, BC), Carcross Art House (Carcross, Yukon), Talking Stick Festival (Roundhouse, Vancouver, BC).
