I love this store! I wanted to use this as a money/card holder, but it's a little big for my purposes. That's all on me for not looking at the size, though! I use it as a stash bag, and it's awesome. Thinking about buying the smaller version next.
Conscious Fashion with Art & Soul
As an artist aiming to stay true to the integrity of my craft and support myself and my family, I created commercial products, using my paintings, photographs, woodcuts and other printmaking art pieces. This makes the art affordable while hopefully having a positive effect on people and the planet.
The name of my business was created by my former mother -in law. I knew I wanted the word love in the business name and her knowing me and my artwork, suggested Dharma plus Love.
Dharma is a Sanskrit word that has many meanings I chose the one that means Spiritual Teachings+ with love = Spiritual Teachings with love. This not only acts as the brand for our products but it is our way of sending Blessings out into the world.
It has been the affirmations I’ve received from the people that have purchased the ‘dharma love’ products that has made me feel like I have succeeded in what I started out to do.

I am a painter, photographer, printmaker and I place my original artwork onto socially conscious, sustainable clothing and accessories. The garments act as the canvas for my work. Much care and research goes into the making and purchasing of products that house my artwork. I manually print the art onto the fabrics in my studio with a professional heat press. The garments consist of Certified Organic Cotton, Hemp and Socially Accountable cotton products. I look for high quality, reasonably-priced and socially-conscious products NOT contributing to the demise of Humans creating the garments or the Environment.
The relationship with my craft begins from an original piece of artwork-- painting, photograph, monotype, woodcut, or lithograph. My creativity is fueled by my experiences-- travel, nature, a simple still life or just everyday life. As an artist aiming to stay true to the integrity of my craft and support myself and my family, I created commercial products. This makes the art affordable while hopefully having a positive effect on people and the planet.
Approaching my seventh year in business, it has been the affirmations I’ve received from the people that have purchased the ‘dharma love’ products that has made me feel like I have succeeded in what I started out to do.
