Omg! It was just meant to be.. I was born to have a colorful life full of brushes and paint. I love painting my dolls with long lashes. I love knowing that my dolls make other women happy and that it inspires other women to follow their wildest dreams. I see colors and possibilities in everything!!

Envi Shoes is excited to announce that we have teamed up with LA based graffiti artist Sand One for an awesome giveaway! We are giving our fans a chance to win a pair of customized hand-painted Jeffrey Campbell Abner! Get to know a little more about this talented pint-size beauty below!!How did you get started in art?Who are some of your favorite artists dead or alive?Oh .. Well here's the listFirst I would say , Frida Kahlo, she was a hard rock. Had love issues, success failures and dreams. She was a Boss! Love her!Then ill pick Vang Gogh.. He was a wreck ! No one in the art world liked his art.. Yet he conquered the art world and became a known name. In life you have to stick to your hearts desires and run with this feeling. And lastly me.. I'm always looking back at my accomplishments, I'm proud of my self. I cant wait to see my emails and go bananas on a new deal or someone wanting to collect a piece of my art. everyday of my life is full of vibrant surprises. As women lets always applaud and motivate each other, specially ourselves. Lets go girls! Leave your boyfriends at home (laughs)(image painted by Sand One for Betsey Johnson)Where did the Sand One doll come from?She came from my mothers pretty long thick mascara saturated lashes and her pretty red and at times pink lips. My mom is a symbol of strength to me, she works every day I'm her catering business, never has sick days nor Sad days. She is committed to her career.. I faithfully follow her example . All the strong focused hard working women are the muses i paint for. My art is for the strong minded, beautiful, career driven mademoiselle of today.What are some of your biggest influences when creating your dolls?I always think of what other women would like to see. Emotional issues we go through such as love, heartbreaks, dating issues, and work. Other girls styles and mentalities influence the way my dolls will look and think. All my crazy emotions and my friends emotions drive me crazy! So I oil my cans and brushes.. Find a wall or a canvas and paint love letters!What are some of your favorite things to paint? ie buildings, paper, cars...I adore painting mobiles.. Big trucks wrapped around with my art, it's fun to see my mobile art driving around the city while I'm commuting on my daily errands. I love driving somewhere random and then all of a sudden I see my art on wheels! Waalaaa!I also enjoy painting big Giant dolls on the sides buildings located on areas were everyone in the city were you will see my art. The bigger the better, why be small? Go big ladies! Let dream big and wild! Why successful person made coherent sense? LolIf you could paint your dolls on anything, what would it be?I cant wait to paint a yacht, the inside of a well known museum, the headquarters of Jeffrey Campbell and Christian Loubotin shoes. The inside pools and walls inside of many mansions in the Hollywood hills and Miami Beach (i love miami!) and lastly.. to have my fine art hanging gracefully in the homes of all the influential women of today that understand my art.My art is like hieroglyphics to the modern girl of now.Where can someone find some of your favorite dolls if traveling to LA?Well.. Here's my favorite ones.. I love these because I had so many emotions tuning through my mind and heart when I created these.. Some murals are full of many emotions which I felt the need to convey to my city trough a mural. I love my Stay Golden mural located off Alvarado and 7th st. That was my heart break mural (evil laughs)The next one would be on Hollywood Blvd at Big Mamas Pizzeria.. It's located on 5150 Hollywood Blvd. that one was the.. You don't make me happy anymore.. So I'm creating a good bye mural to you.. Type of mural.And the last one will be a mural in the Culver City Arts District .. Called "Goal Digger " it depicts a woman drowning in luxury enjoying everything her ambition and knowledge has brought to her. She knows her worth and will settle for nothing less.Love yourself so much.. No one can match your self love. Be selfish with your time and generous with your dreams.XoxoAll images can be found here

Want to see what is up for grabs? ?Check out the T.U.K. Creepers Here.
Since 1991, San Diego based footwear company, T.U.K., has brought classic British punk styles reminiscent of underground music movements, to shoes with a modern, edgy twist. ?From punks to pin-ups and every style in between, T.U.K. delivers to musicians, fans, and those simply with a unique style. They seem to understand the distinctive relationship that fashion, music, and art share and have styled all sorts of footwear to embody this. Supporting all things alternative, they feature various bands, record labels and even magazines on their website to keep those passionate about this lifestyle connected. In 2003, they grew internationally and continue to provide iconic styles of vintage footwear.
Perhaps the most legendary of these styles, the Creeper has maintained a prominent role in the T.U.K. line.? From Willow Smith, to Katy Perry at Coachella, artists never miss a beat whilst rocking these shoes, even for questionable performances, such as Miley Cyrus at the VMA?s (yes, creepers are twerk friendly).
For the most recent Creepers sightings, check out T.U.K.?s blogspot, http://tukshoes.blogspot.com, http://creepers-all-the-world.tumblr.com for styling ideas, and an awesome video of the Creeper line by Live Life Channel at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZlxwQgaVxeY.
