Although my ancestors' use of henna fell to the wayside, I embraced it and made it my career. As a self-taught artist I refined my skills with world-renown henna tutors acquiring extensive knowledge and experience in a wide variety of styles from traditional to contemporary.
My husband, Chris, came aboard when the business grew. His natural mechanical abilities and experience in facilities puts Chris right at home overseeing mechanical operations to venue management.
