Estevan artist creating fancy footwear

Afternoon Edition host Craig Lederhouse speaks with a young artist from Estevan who wears his canvas on his feet.

Dallas Gordey is making his mark in the art world by making marks on shoes

For some artists, it's all about watercolour on paper. For others, it's oil on canvas. 

For Dallas Gordey, an Estevan-based artist, his canvas is shoes. Gordey creates elaborate designs on Vans and Converse running shoes with markers.

Gordey said he's heading to art school next fall and is currently saving money for school by selling his one-of-a-kind sneakers.
