Shoe Story

shoe storyThese are my prototypes,  my practice run, they were only supposed to be a “rehearsal ” so to show up technicalities and find what worked for me.  However, each shoe “walked” a path, not the one I expected, but one I that has opened a door to my ancestors.   I even made the Guardian on line, and sold some to an advertising agency………….     Why shoes I have been asked?  I wanted to do  a piece of work about the path I have trodden these long and eventful 60 years but my soul seemed to want to go beyond.   My grandmother and my great grandmother are people who have formed who I am today, it was a surprise to find myself scanning and printing images of them for use in shoes, but I knew my grandmother well, she would have loved them,.   Not sure where to go from here, but this is my shoe story to date.
