About Me

Welcome to My New Website!
My name is Dora Caregnato and I draw since I have memory!
The pencil is an extension of my fingers… I observe and capture the subject’s essence with some color strokes and I’m always looking for new ideas to express my creativity.
I’m a painter, portraitist, caricaturist, I’m passionate about body painting, tattoos, trompe l’oeil and scenic decorations… Dora is Not Only Shoes!
After the Artistic Maturity I graduated in Industrial Design, but the mass-produced items are not absolutely made for me! Since 2004, I’m the Creative Graphic for the Italian subsidiary of a multinational group.
D’ORA Hand painted Shoes ® is my latest project: hand-decorated footwear, art to wear, unique, precious and original.
The D’ORA Hand painted Shoes ® “fit like a glove” on special occasions and make you feel special every day! You can see all my creations on home page or search for some ideas by clicking on each category: Children, Bags, Cartoons, Music, Nature, Shoe-venir®, Sneakers, Special Topics and Bride.
