I have a photo of my 16 year old self on the top of Ayers Rock, wearing a pair of yellow Converse hightops, Cherry Lane shorts and a Stuart Membery Lake Idahoe t-shirt. I have a perm, a suntan and a pink stripey hankie tied around my neck. I was totally loving myself. Cry laughing I look so bad, but remember so fondly and with such love being a teenager in the 80's. We all wanted to be the Dolly cover model and pash Andrew McCarthy. Well I did anyway! My Gorman sneakers are an ode to being fancy, foot free and under the influence of every fashion hormone/influence/faux pas of this beautiful decade. Minus the perm but with all the attitude. Big pop of yellow, a candy pink stripe with a little grungy fray, girly dolly pom poms, and always I can hear the THE SMITHS playing somewhere in the background.

materials: fabric paint, cotton, pom poms
