School of Fine Art’s Shoe Designer and Painter

Lauren Luna, an Academy of Art University MFA School of Fine Art graduate, is a classically trained painter who moved to Houston, TX a year ago to pursue her second artistic career as a shoe designer. Though her canvas paintings often focus on things such as race and class issues, her shoes are whimsical, colorful and sometimes pay homage to pop artists of the past. “The easiest way to put that is that I am a shoe designer and a painter," the Academy graduate said. Most recently, RaMona Rizzo of VH1's Mob Wives tweeted a photo of herself in a pair of Lauren's colorblock stilettos. Her shoes are being sold in boutiques in her hometown of Columbus, OH, and she's looking for stores in Houston as well. In the meantime, Lauren’s selling her designer shoes on Etsy at LaurenLunaLtd.
