Adorable Hand-Painted Portraits of Animals on Shoes

If you ever wanted to honor your pet in a special way, or you want to buy a gift for your friend who loves animals, we’ve found the perfect way to do this. Thanks to artist Claire Marie, you can now get a unique pair of shoes with a portrait of your pet on them.

This talented Welsh-born artist who is currently residing in Perth, Australia has been creating adorable shoes with hand-painted portraits of animals for the past six years.

“Art has always been an integral part of my life, and I have a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Visual Art,” the artist told Bored Panda. “My favorite medium to paint in is acrylic on a variety of different objects and surfaces. My style is quite detailed and I have a passion for painting tiny works of art”.

Marie is also illustrating children’s books and large murals, but we guess that creating something so unique like these shoes, must bring a special joy to her. She has her own business called *The Little Treasure Company* and you can order all of her merchandise online.
