What type of artwork do you do?We are illustrators, graphic designers and painters. At Studio Jellyfish we use the beautiful form of a high heel as our canvas and transform it’s lifeless exterior into wearable art. What we intend to do is make it so women are no longer restricted to flat one color shoes. As an alternative, women can now show off their fun, creative and classy side by just changing their shoes.
How long have you been creating?We have always been artists. We believe that you are born an artist, and that “love for art” is something that you can’t be taught in a school. For several years now we have been illustrating, painting, and working daily on the computer. Much of what we do stays digital or becomes printed material. We wanted to find an outlet for our love of painting and traditional art. It wasn’t until I went shoe shopping one day that I realized women’s high heels are the perfect canvas for our art and design. As a woman, I felt it was important to give women all around the world an alternative to plain high heels. I have always loved fashion, however I found searching for unique heels to be quite a challenge. I began to think “Why not wear something colorful that makes you feel confident and able to stand out in the crowded sea of bland shoes.” Studio Jellyfish has really just been around for about 2 months now. But we are really excited to put all of our heart and souls into all the work and design we do at Studio Jellyfish.

What inspires you to create?
Do you have a designing process?We often use pen and paper or Illustrator and Photoshop while sketching out designs or ideas. Afterward we move to the painting process, This is the really fun part. While we are painting we really get to express ourselves in color choices, line weight and the creation of the whole painting. When painting you are able to go into a different world, if even for just a moment and create something beautiful.
Where do you do your creating?Mostly out of our studio.
Have you always been artsy?We have always been artists. We believe that you are born an artist, and that “love for art” is something that you can’t be taught in a school. Even as children we were drawling and painting what we saw around us. Both Philip and I have always been extremely passionate about art and all that you are able to express by it. We honestly feel like two of the luckiest people in the world having found the one thing that we love to do more than anything else.
