I am a professional henna artist living in New Orleans. My first brief experience with henna was in 1998, though I did not revisit this beautiful art form again in practice until 2009. Rather organically, over the course of the next few years my hobby morphed into a profession. I enjoy studying, and respect the many varied and diverse traditions which have employed this art throughout the centuries. I love the temporary, organic nature of the art form, and the connections it can often create. In addition to working as a henna artist I am also a certified yoga instructor, RYT 500, and have been teaching in New Orleans since 2006.
