About her #25colorado design: ‘Land of Dreams’
It was inspired by adventure and the Island of Pico. The dreams of people and dreams growing around the boots. With the thoughts of family, surfing and art.
"What struck me about this was how the boots were taken out of the context of their function yet still depicting the ruggedness and purpose in a really creative way."
