I love shoes. I have always loved shoes. And now I love making shoes.
All of the shoes I create are designed in my sunny Palm Springs studio and are handmade, by me, in my Makerville Studio in the mountains above Palm Springs. My shoes are unique, one-of-a-kind designs. There is no production line, just me, an artisan shoemaker.
I am inspired by exotic materials and skins, vintage fabrics and jewels, my dreams, travel, art and the steady stream of ideas I capture in my design notebooks. I make several different kinds of shoes - hand stitched or cement construction depending on the style of the shoes and the needs of the client.
My shoe prices depend upon the materials and the complexity of the custom-made shoe design. For example, an alligator hide is far more expensive than vintage linen fabric. Generally speaking, it costs about the same to have a unique pair of artist-made shoes created for you, as to buy a pair of good factory-made shoes.
But, wouldn't you rather have a pair of custom shoes?
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like me to create a special pair of shoes just for you.
