Item Description

As an artist, I am continually inspired and influenced by our natural Okanagan landscape. For these shoes, I chose to work in a bold colour palette, and bring elements of gold and silver leafing accents to the design. I enjoy the process of working on different shaped canvas, so painting on these Converse shoes was a perfect challenge!

Sizing: Mens 6 / Womens 8
