If I were not a physician, I would be a full-time artist. But, I am still mainly a Mom who works as a physician and artist on the side. I have always LOVVVEEED to paint and create stuff; doing nothing is next to morbidity and death. I breathe and live ART, whether it be nice, weird or fierce. My tweenies inspire me and they have always been a source of the new and the hip. Art is reinvention and endless can never stop!!!

I hand paint and personalize Converse or Vans for highly interested clients on "made-to-order" arrangement. I would be open to your suggestions and request for your design or theme.

Triangle.  With three equal sides it makes it perfect.  Can two relationships be at par?  Can you equally divide your heart and love two persons at  the same time?  When one side of the triangle is shorter, the rest however, still becomes equal.  It can no longer be the perfect shape, but the two can now see eye to eye.

     One gives you a crystal heart. It is pure like his intentions, magical like his words, unbreakable like his promises and precious as his thoughts.  The perfect cut, the gem you would die for. He is such a sucker for Patience and Virtue, amazingly tolerant of your whims and flares yet never being overboard. "Too much too soon" makes it insignificant in the future.  Everything has its perfect timing. Give it a moment to sink in then you will agree that it's worth the wait. It may even take years for you to agree, but always try not to do anything on impulse. The wolf is happily there to catch you, teeth and all.

     The other showers you with the earth.  Excitement, Risk and Loyalty make up his name.  He is the "unofficial", the fling, the challenger and the buffer. He is the face that reappears in your dreams every M-W-F. He patiently waits for your call, while he rearranges his malignant and troubled mind.  Light conversations come easy because deep ones bore him.  Maybe, he doesn't want to let his guard down, hates to sound desperate and mushy when you give a little bit of yourself. He marks his territory, pretty wicked cool of him to even consider it. Lost in translation. You don't consider him your top priority, yet you are concerned of his welfare. You want him to take a back seat and throw your fears away. But he continues to recycle after you discard him. He bounces back, the ever loyal fan.

     Both are so different in character, yet painfully charming. Your yin and yang. Both gives you butterflies in your stomach. Like comfort food, both satisfies your appetite and quenches the thirst. You repeatedly go back to it, fulfilling your satiety center. Can you exist without the other?  The pattern will go on until you make up your mind. You can love them both, on different planes and levels. But, someone has to take you to higher heights, to a place no one can tread except you and the Chosen One. Like an eclipse, one obscures the other like the sun eclipses on the moon. Then you can start to live your own little world of love...I have chosen and I wear his ring. Have you?

Hello there,
I was searching about Hunger Games and it's when I found your amazing Converse paintings.
I REALLY like Converses, I don't know why, but they are just beatiful. Specificly, you might heard of it, that Gorillaz Converses. I have the colorful one.
I also like Hunger Games too.
So your work is just.. Woah, can't find the word.. It's my style, I guess?..
Anyway, I love your paintings, keep doing it, please :D

I'm glad to hear that, thanks for your answer! :)

It is just acrylic paint. I don't coat it with anything because usually the extra coating will tend to make the fabric hard and uncomfortable.

I would like to ask something. I painted some shoes as well with acrylics, but don't dare to wash them. You say it is possible to wash hand painted shoes several times without damaging them, so I wonder: did you do something with the acrylics (like mix them with some other liquid, or so) to protect them or is it just acrylics you use?

Hey! :wave: I've looked through your gallery and just wanted to tell you your cakes and cupcakes are lovely! Your edible paintwork is some of the prettiest I've seen.

I hope to one day be as skilled as you. ^^;
