Welcome to Creative Kicks! Where you can get your own pair of shoes like no other, and be able to show them off to your friends.
My name is Madelyn Yonnetti, and I was born and raised in North Carolina. I graduated from Wake Technical Community College in 2018 with an Associate Degree of Arts and a Certificate in Advertising and Graphic Design. I've been making art all my life, and with the help of my father (who is also an artist), and more art classes, I've been able to continue and improve my skills. Before getting into painting shoes, I always preferred drawing portraits; I have also dabbled in charcoal, pastels, digital art, embroidery, and makeup portraits.
I received my inspiration when a well-known shoe company released a limited series of Van Gogh shoes. Like most people, I couldn't afford to buy my own, so I decided to make my own. From then on I've just fallen in love with this form of art. I've found my work so unique and amazing; being able to add your passions to something as important as shoes. Showing the world what you love. Now I want to be able to give other people that opportunity. Thanks for checking me out!
