Sarah Rose Warman
is the Creative Director and Founder. She began Cannavas Creative in 2017 when she noticed the lack of full creative solutions in the cannabis and hemp industry. She has been involved with the industry for more than a decade and found her natural passion is a family tradition.
Her elders were hemp farmers in Illinois and Indiana until the prohibition forced them to sell their land. Always an ally, Sarah's roots started in urban development and community planning.
She has attended the worlds leading cannabis and design events including 420 Hemp Fest Milano, Spannabis, Graph EXPO, HighTimes Fest Amsterdam, Chicago's Cannabis Resource Fair, Opus Connect Food & Bev. Summit, CFA Society Cannabis Insights & Opportunities.
Her contributions to Grant Park and many other Community arts programs are still at the forefront of her mission today. When she is not creating with cannabis, she enjoys rollerskating, paddle boarding and traveling the world.
