Kick Off Your Heels!

Let me introduce a fantastic, fun(draising) event:  Kick Off Your Heels!  I hope you will join me in submitting a fabulous, custom-decorated set of heels for consideration in this juried event.

Are you aware that more women die each year in the US from cardiovascular disease than all cancers combined?!  Sue Bleiweiss and Jamie Fingal put together a project to help raise awareness of that horrifying statistic.  The goal is to raise $5,000 for The Barbra Streisand Women’s Heart Center at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles,California: they not only treat women, but also educate and do major research for this disease as it pertains to women.  Katie Couric talked to Barbra  Streisand about the heart center and you can watch excerpts from that interview here.
So how are we going to do achieve our goal? We’ll do it through an online sale of high heel shoes that have been transformed into works of art!   We’ve already created a few pairs of shoes to inspire the art communityand you can see those here.  Here are the heels I’ve created for this project that will be available for purchase in May of 2013:
These stilettos are called,
"Women Fly When Men Aren't Looking"

Please stop by the Kick Off Your Heels blog for more images of artists' shoe-tastic creations.


  1. Love your high steppin' high heels! And how appropriate that they are photographed on graffiti canvas! Beautiful and for a great cause!

  2. Beautiful! I love the wings and the title!

  3. Thank you! So much fun to create these little whimsies!
