Henna Jellyfish I Am

Painting jellyfishes has become my favorite thing to do recently.  Not sure when I became so fascinated with jellyfishes, but it's been fun.  Here are pictures I took of them at an aquarium and then my henna jellyfish.  Sometimes I think not have a brain wouldn't be so bad after all --- it would definitely prevent me from over-thinking everything.  :)

This last jellyfish picture I created using REAL henna!  It's available in other background colors as well.  So feel free to visit my etsy shop and send me a message with the background color you'd like! Here is the link to see more pictures of the painting:

Bringing Luck My Way

 I seem to be out of luck...looked left and right and couldn't figure out how to bring it back so I made these two frames.  The peacock feather designs were created using REAL henna!  


So maybe it's wishful thinking that luck will come back to me with these frames....but luck is serendipitous in that way!  Let me know if you have any extra luck lying around so that I can borrow some.  

Be well.

A Giddy Feeling

I stayed up all night working on this painting.  I lost count of how many hours it took me to finish the henna design..... But the painting looks awesome!  It makes me giddy everytime I look at it.  So, that's why I finally wrote a post.  The painting is 10x32inches.

Tell me what you think:

I just listed it in my shop as well!  I can do smaller versions of the painting as well - just email me at

How to Add Spice to Life!!!!

Recently I've been feeling so out of touch with inner self.  Often, I feel like I'm going through the motions but not enjoying anything.  So with the intention to add spice to my life, I did 5 henna projects last night ----- I have been so crazy busy at work that I haven't been able to do any henna art.  Getting some henna in my hands was so awesome.  Just relieved all of my work stress!!!

Here's a sneak peak of what I worked on:
