SB Sentient Beauty LLC Our Story
SB Sentient Beauty is my gift to my daughter showing her that through her own hard work, creativity, power and love she can build a life for herself that is her own, and that when shared with those she loves will show them too. For her and for me, I hope you'll join our journey and see how much even a little of your time will help cultivate this shop into a livelihood we're proud to cultivate.
Our mission is one that supports carbon offset delivery methods, vegan, cruelty-free cosmetics and skin care and installment payment method for ease of purchase. Our product line includes, but is not limited to the following, with a constant search for products created by artisans and companies who share my sustainability values.
- vegan cosmetics and skincare
- women's fashions
- wellness products.
- Most recently, I've added Sentient Shopper Personal Shopping Service to offer a personal shopping assistant to our offerings.
- Our collections enable you to use cosmetics and skincare that are vegan and cruelty free and products delivered with delivery options, such as Shop Pay, that help us to plant trees that reduce your delivery impact. The trees we plant will capture enough CO₂ in their lifetime to offset Shop Pay deliveries.
I'm a native of New Mexico, the Land of Enchantment, where I've enjoyed a life in the southwest where my love of landscape, vistas and blue skies has engendered in me a connection to the earth as my home where ever I'm living. Although I have traveled way beyond New Mexico and throughout Europe I established roots when I had my daughter. My home is where she is, as she grows and establishes her own vision of the world into which I hope she infuses my love, respect for all living things, our planet, people and self into her own life with her own special gifts and talents. SB Sentient Beauty LLC originated through inspiration and resourcefulness seeking a means by which I'd establish myself as an entrepreneur in our world of continually changing times. My love for creating is manifested in my shop in every aspect of it's operation, but motherhood is my biggest honor in life. Through my entrepreneurship I hope to teach my daughter that she can be anything she desires through her own vision, power, creativity and hard work. I became a mother at the age of 47 and it was the most transformative experience of my life. The world around me was transformed and renewed and my vision for the future renewed. Motherhood took me out of myself and gave me to another. The other in this world to which I devote everything that I am. I know that she watches me, and captures the essence of who I am and what I do so I want her to receive only the best that I am.
My education is in Liberal Arts/Dance/Writing having performed in New York, throughout New Mexico and with the New Mexico Ballet Company. As a lover of fine and performing arts and in creating everyday I was honored to portray one of my favorite artists Georgia O'Keefe in the documentary Bone Wind Fire. NFB "This Emmy-nominated feature film is an intimate and evocative journey into the hearts, minds and eyes of Georgia O’Keeffe, Emily Carr and Frida Kahlo - 3 of the 20th century’s most remarkable artists. The film uses the women’s own words, taken from their letters and diaries, to reveal 3 individual creative processes in all their subtle and fascinating variety."
