Back in May, I had the opportunity to work as the makeup artist on an amazing project. Joni Kabana, an award-winning visual artist and photojournalist, and the woman behind the camera on our Naturally Gorgeous model shoots, was going to be shooting a calendar for a local yoga studio, and needed makeup for the models. Being familiar with my work, and the way that Alima Pure photographs, Joni asked if I would come and help out. The project, she explained, was to spread the word about a series of classes at The Yoga Project, a studio in the Sellwood area of Portland, called “Yoga for The Larger Woman.”
Growing up in Laguna Beach, Liz Dick dreamed of someday having her own boutique in her hometown. In April, her dream came true, and Green Tree Boutique opened its doors to eco-conscious shoppers, and welcomes shoppers of the four-legged variety as well.
