Description:
I love TOMs shoes, and wear mine everyday but its more than just a shoe and great movement to help others have shoes for me. Toms is a main part of me and my family's daily life! I am an artist trying to get my name out there and get me and my family out of the 'starving artist' category. Over a year ago I was asked to take part in a 'Style Your Sole' party. I painted branches and birds and animals on shoes for a few people and loved getting to not make something that made someone happy wile also helping someone get shoes who wouldn't normally have some. It seemed like such a win win situation! After having several requests for me to paint more Toms for people I started a shop on etsy for painted toms. Ive painted almost 200 pairs of toms since last spring! Its a dream come true! Not only do I have a job I love and get to paint everyday, but I get to help people have shoes!
