When Lindsay isn’t painting, gardening, volunteering or running her new private psychology practice, she is dipping her toes into the enchanting ancient art of henna. She feels gratitude for the many incredible people that she has met while doing henna, and is also impressed with the relaxing qualities of applying or receiving henna (consider your body to be her version of an adult coloring book, hehe).
Lindsay takes great care in listening to what you are looking to achieve with your henna designs. On the other hand, if you don’t have a design in mind, just ask her to impress you with a freestyle design! You won’t be disappointed. In either case, she will leave you with an original henna design that suits your own individuality!
“Art and love are the same thing. It’s the process of finding yourself in something that is not you.” Chuck Klosterman
When Kierra isn’t spending her time drawing, or painting, she is pushing her learning edge to the limit to develop her skills as an exceptional henna artist. Naturally, she could not pass up an opportuntity to get creative with our team! In her eyes, henna is a beautiful form of art that anyone can use to express themselves. She is captivated by the cultural aspect of henna almost as much as she is with the art itself, and it is her joy to explore the endless possible designs she might offer you. To Kierra, henna is an escape from all obligation and a chance to free herself with creativity. She would be honored to bring the elegance of henna body art to your life!
