How do you define what you do?
When I am painting, it is like being in a dream: time goes by differently. Being an artist is not easy, doesn’t matter if you are famous or not, but I hold tight to it! I am happy about that.
How did start to work as an artist and painter? 
To cut a long story short, I needed to do something that pleased me, that cheered me up and that allowed me to do something with passion and liberty! Most interesting things that defines who you are? 
Really? I don’t think I am a very interesting person. I’m curious, I’m positive, I am systematic and I work hard, very hard.
Your lucky charm is:
A shamrock, a typical Irish one but I am not superstitious, except about the shamrock!
Prized possession: 
Is there anything more important than the life you live? The people you love? The dreams you dream?!
What is your favourite place and why?
First place is home because I am with people I love and care about. Definitely, there is no better place in the world!
The second place is, of course, my Atelier where I am close to my paintings! It is a corner of paradise.
What is your favourite book and why?
I am proud to say that my favourite book is “The Little Prince”. I have a collection of it in several different languages… even those I do not speak!
Your dream dinner party would be with?
Wouah, tricky question! My husband, naturally!
In another life, you’d be…
No doubt I would be a Quantum scientist. Does it exist? :)
One wish for the gold fish:
I wish we could all be very indulgent to each other. Life would be just perfect.
Work is:
Work can be boring, hard and stressful or not... but painting is Fun!
Painting helps creativity, self-esteem, concentration... and as I say to my friends, it is an activity that keeps you out of trouble!
The future will be:
Nobody knows. The unique real time is the present. Live it with all your heart and that will be fine.
The past was:
Experience, sometimes good, sometimes not so good… more experience and a lot of pictures in different albums.

Sizing Chart

This is the BAABUK sizing chart for our sneaker/urban wooler collection

Choosing the right shoes online can be difficult, in addition to regular sizing, we offer additional measurements in the chart below so that you can measure your foot to get the perfect fit.

Note that our shoes are made of wool. Wool is a stretchable material that will adapt itself to your foot. I general we recommend that if you have a larger feet or if you are in between two sizes  to take the size above (e.g EU 42 1/2 -> 43).

In order to choose your perfect pair just measure the length and girth of your feet.

To measure the length you can put your feet on a with page of paper and draw the line in front and at the back of your feet (the highest point at the front and at the back). The length can vary between 1 and 2 mm. To measure the girth you will circle your feet at the ball part. Check this link how to measure the ball girth.

If your feet is large we suggest that you choose the size above that is matching to the girth given in our chart.

The pictures below will help you with these measurements :

Please not that if the size you choose doesn't fit you perfectly you can exchange your shoes.

Slipper Sizing:

The slipper are hand-felted in one piece without any stitching. The advantage of these kind of slippers is that with the time, your feel will continue to felt the slippers and they will take the shape of your feet.

We have cut the opening of the shoes a little bit tighter. For the kids and female sizes we have cut a litle 'V' cut to make it easier to entre the shoe. In case you feel its still too tight, just cut with a scisor the 'V' a little bit bigger. That is only possible with hand-felted wool slippers.

Here the sizing conversation between the EU, US and UK for the slippers.

Conditions : Please contact us if you want to exchange the shoes. Once we have validate your request you can ship us the unused shoe (on your charges). We will ship you back a new pair (on our charges).
