Women are defined by their accessories.  And what does it say about us that our most “fashionable” shoes are torture devices? I began making shoes out of frustration with the fashion industry.  But one shoe lead to another.  I became acutely aware of the prominent status of shoes in our culture.   They permeate our fairy tales and myths.  They are icons of sexuality, power, wealth, dependence & salvation.  They’re great fodder for social commentary.
