Coleen's Trees & Birds

"Trees & Birds" is a custom pair of art shoes illustrated by pen and ink artist Halle Riddlebarger for Coleen, an awesome Village Shoes customer from North Carolina. Drawn in black india ink on a white leather pump, this pair features trees reaching up from the base of the heel and birds in flight on each toe.

Want your own art shoes? The artist uses black india ink that is fadeproof & waterproof and she can draw on any light colored, smooth leather shoe. Contact her at halle@village-shoes.com for details.

Halle's Art is Studied in New Zealand...

Our very own Pen and Ink Artist Halle Riddlebarger was contacted recently by a teacher in New Zealand who had been following her career online from our website and blog. Her class of art students were studying Halle's art shoes and were given a project of their very own. She sent us pictures of some of the great creations they came up with and we wanted to share them with you!

Congrats kid's on a job well done! The shoes look great and we love them. Keep up the good work! - The Village Shoes Crew
