This Artist is Painting Portraits of Pets on Shoes

If you have a friend who is a pet lover, you’ve probably wondered what to get them for their birthday. Claire Marie, an artist from Western Australia, has the perfect gift idea for any animal lover.

This creative artist is using her talent to hand-paint custom shoes and artworks with pet portraits on them.

“As an animal lover and vegan, I have a passion for painting animals. One of my most popular requests is pet portrait shoes. Every pair of shoes is individually commissioned and has a special meaning to the wearer,” Claire Marie said to Bored Panda.

“Each portrait is painted freehand with great detail working from life or from photographs. They have either been painted to remember a pet that has passed on or as a gift for a pet lover.”

You must admit that any pet owner would be thrilled to own a pair of these remarkable shoes.
