Hi, my name is Erin.
The question I get most often after “how long have you been doing this?” (14 years) is “how did you get started?”, and it’s a difficult question to answer. There are a few different answers, but in short, it was simply inevitable.
Body art is intrinsic to my artistic impulses. They led me to henna and other body art forms, they led me through my degree in costume design, and they show no signs of ever letting me go. I have tried many many ways of decorating the human body, from inks and tattoos to jewelry and costumes, and henna is simply my favorite. I am happy when I henna. I enjoy the chemistry of mixing it, I love sharing the magic of wearing art, and I adore the wealth of ideas and requests I get from my customers.
I fully committed to henna as a business at the start of this year, after looking my longtime doubts in the eye and asking myself “What if I just did what I loved? Even if it was the hardest work I’ve ever done, even if I don’t make it, would it really be worse than another year of resisting the call to create?”.
I bring skill, vision and passion for the possibilities to put at your disposal. Bring me your ideas, and let’s bring art to life!
