As an artist who gets anxious and excited every time I start a new shoe painting, I got even more spastic when I discovered the art...eh shoe making genius of Anastasia Radevich. Her shoes are like flashes of the future and the organically inspired. I want to swim in her brain for a bit to see where she is coming from. The next best thing though, is the sneak peek of her sketch book on her website. I ate that up like a thanksgiving feast. It had elements of earth and whimsy and grit and softness. It was akin to watching a ballerina or ice skater. You see their strength and tenacity, yet they are so delicate looking and refined. I just hope that my art shoes can one day inspire someone else like her shoes do to me.
Hey Ms. Anastasia Radevich, if you are reading this, I'll trade you a painting any day for a pair of your awesome shoes!
