I'm Jeanette Platania-Harper, a professional artist with a focus on organic henna body art and maiolica-style paintings + jewelry.
Island Girl Henna is a welcoming, inclusive art studio located in Delhi NY in the western Catskill Mountains.
Fine line henna design detail.
Henna is a plant whose dried leaves have the ability to stain.
Henna body art is 1,300 years old. It's often called temporary henna tattoos, hinna + mehndi.
Henna at Island Girl is blended in-house using the finest organic ingredients and applied completely freehand.
Henna appointments are open to those fully vaccinated.
When the pandemic put my henna career on pause I dove into my Sicilian heritage and drew inspiration from Italian maiolica, creating acrylic paintings in this famous style.
Life gave me lemons so now I paint them! This artistic expansion came from the most unusual of circumstances and I'm extremely happy to present to you this artistic addition to Island Girl Henna.
