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.
My spirit could not be dampened by the rain, nor the stern look from the waitress insisting “We don’t do that here” upon my request for a container to take the remainder of that perfect creamy squash soup with me. It was the night before my birthday and I was in Paris! I had just wondered through the streets near 24 Rue Francois 1er and stared into the windows of the closed shops of Christian Dior, Chanel, Hermes and the like. While stopping there at Cafe’ Mode for an evening bite, I sketched the scene and water colored and inked it later. I’ll always remember my happy jaunt in the rain with my light jacket and umbrella, halting in emotional surprise when I came upon the watery night view of the Eiffel Tour lights.
This and several like it, professionally framed by Capricorn Framing are part of my solo exhibition in the Haight Ashbury District at Blue Front Cafe at 1430 Haight St. San Francisco, CA. Continue reading

Cute Capelets…Your New Cool Weather Staple
We’ve added some fabulous new pieces to the shop, and we hope that you love them as much as we do. These pieces are designed to be sexy, versatile, and fun to wear.
In the spirit of sustainability and low waste, Yabette wanted to find ways to use the off-cut scraps of hemp that were left from her currents rolls. We love the way they came together as capelets. Some of them have added liners in luxuriously warm and strong hemp fleece making them deliciously cozy around the neck and shoulders. Perfect for a layer-happy city like San Francisco. We love the silhouette a capelet gives- emphasizing the shoulders in proportion to the waist. The use of the off-cuts makes each one of these capelets unique. Continue reading
I am super excited to share the piece that is going to change your life….it’s called the Deb Top!

The one that can easily be dressed up or dressed down depending on your vibe. (I want it within a week, take me to the buy page now.) Continue reading
After a few hours of shooting some new pieces from the Hemp Collection, we moved outside to get our last couple shots. The light was absolutely perfect while Yabette was styling our model and muse, Bianca.
Yabette and Bianca met on an art project Yabette was working on. I remember her telling me about this super cool young woman she met…Yabette immediately thought she would make an awesome Swankety Swank model because she’s not only cool and gorgeous, she’s also a socially conscious creator who does work in the theater world as a performer and playwright among her other many abilities. (You should hear her sing!!) You can read more about Bianca here. Continue reading
