This fantastic event is giving me life! Join me for a night of luxury, glamour, and glorification of the plant that has over 25,000 different uses!  While she has been misunderstood, neglected and underestimated, HEMP is now coming into her own and I am showcasing her with might and muse!

I have finished my year long focus in oils on hemp and am bringing you my results plus education in The Hemp Show hanging this very moment in Rosenblum Cellars Winery at The Ferry Building in Oakland’s Jack London Square. You can get a peek at some of the art here, while the rest will be unveiled online after this Artist Reception Event.Hemp Poster 2 web

Fashion Finds: Eco Chic Fashion with Soft Layers

From the moment Bianca slipped into this gorgeous black dress, it was pure magic.

The hemp/organic cotton ribbed jersey stretch is super soft and the black bamboo/organic cotton is slightly see thru. It was obvious that our model and muse felt amazing in this dress. It has a light, airy quality that feels like a whisper on the skin.

We paired it with the spruce soy/organic cotton shrug that is equally soft and sensual. It is also available in moss green organic cotton/bamboo blend. Add the easy, sensual, sophisticated layer to your wardrobe here.
