Beauty in Shoemaking
What it taught me about writing...and life. Marimekko fabric, pink leather lining, black leather heels. I started shoemaking to research...
Welcome to my studio! It's my sacred space. A place where I talk about writing, shoemaking, beauty, and all the combinations in between.
Beauty opened my life. I started shoemaking as a way to research this novel. Now I design boots. Writing is a cerebral endeavor that requires stillness. Shoemaking is the opposite: you work with your hands; the tasks can be physically rigorous. However different, they achieve the same meditative result. I love to make beautiful things. The process creates joy and happiness. I feel passionate. This feeling makes me feel more beautiful than ever. I hope you feel it, too.
