"Walkabout," original painting, 40" x 40"
This piece was created using Avia brand shoes.
Many people walk the Earth in shoes with rubber soles, and each brand of shoe has a unique tread design. I use these treads to create paintings that vibrate with color and pattern.
I search for shoes with interesting soles at local thrift stores. After deciding on my design, I put the shoes on, step in paint, and walk on the canvas to create the piece.
The painting is built up in layers using many colors, some of them transparent and others more opaque. The end result is art that speaks to the different journeys of our lives.
Sustainability is an important part of my artistic practice, and this painting was created using repurposed leftover house paint that would otherwise go to waste.
