As you may know, I am an artist as well as an engineer. For the past few months while looking for a full time engineering position (which I have found!) I have been doing a lot of painting. More than I've done in the last few years. Since I had the time and resources, I decided to start a website (and small business) to showcase my work!
Are you in the market for something new and special? Something made just for you?
Check out my website, LittleRedShoes.net
To give you a little background, for Christmas last year, I painted a pair of ballet flats for AV's sister.
The very first pair of shoes
I also painted a set of ceramic mugs for his parents. I loved working on those projects and they were very well received! But Little Red Shoes didn't come about until after I received a commission to paint two pairs of shoes.
I had an interview at the Public Library downtown for a volunteer position and I had worn a pair of ballet flats I had painted in neon colors.
My original shoes
In the elevator someone complimented my shoes. A bit later my phone rang; the woman in the elevator was calling to ask if I might do a commission for her daughter!
With these two new shoes I had enough for a small portfolio, so I set up a website to showcase it!
So if you are looking for a gift for yourself or someone you know, look no further!
As anyone can tell you, fun shoes can make you feel awesome. You provide the shoes, I provide the awesomeness!
The Starlight Special, my signature shoe design
Not a shoe person? How about a custom painted glass or vase?

Still not quite what you're looking for? I can also paint lightswitch and outlet covers, either individually or in matching sets.
I love lightswitch covers, they're easy to change and install and can add a little of your personality to any room. I'll be putting them up in my new place next week!
I love using a fish motif in the bathroom :)
Feel free to look through my other projects, I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed working on them!
All my work is reasonably priced and I'm open to any and all commissions, any size or medium. So remember to look me up when you need something new and different!
What do you think of my work? What kind of gifts would you buy for yourself or your friends?
