Do you hand-paint shoes for other events besides weddings?

Yes of course, there are no limits! From proms, hen nights, summer or Christmas balls to Royal Ascot, cruises and red carpet events.

Do you only paint shoes?

No- I paint wedding dresses, handbags, leather gloves and jackets to name a few. Please view the Gallery for inspiration, or contact me to discuss your ideas.

Am I limited to the style of shoe I choose?

No, however please bear in mind that the larger the surface area of the shoe the better as there is more space to create a masterpiece! Having said that, even the busiest of shoes can still leave some space even if it's just a painted design you want up the back of the heel.

Am I limited to the heel height of my shoes for you to paint them?

No- any heel height is fine from flat pumps through to high-heeled platforms.

Do my shoes need to be a certain fabric?

Satin, silk (not raw silk), leather and synthetic leather or PU is fine.

Are the hand-painted designs waterproof?

The vast majority are, as they are all protected with a sealant spray to protect them however may I suggest you stay away from wading through deep puddles to preserve the life and appearance of your shoes.

Can I add some sparkle to my shoes?

Yes, yes, yes! It's what I'm all about... Creating designs to suit your theme or style adding genuine Swarovski crystals for that extra special touch. I carry the full range of crystal colours to be matched to beading/rhinestones in your dress, tiara etc. Don't just limit yourself there though, velvet ribbons, pom-pom trims and tassels are just a few ideas to personalise your shoes. Remember there are no boundaries and you can contact me to discuss all the options.
