Featured Artist in New Illusion!
The new issue of Illusion will be out in mid-October, and I'm a featured artist in this issue for my pregnant belly henna designs. I'm so excited! I had so many wonderful models and photographers who worked with me on this -- I'm so grateful to them and can't wait to see the final article!
Copies of the magazine can be purchased through Sillyfarm (US) or Illusion Magazine (UK).
In The NEWS!
In 2010 , I had the pleasure of henna-ing jounalist Aimee Heckel's lovely pregnant belly, and my colleague Maureen Sullivan took gorgeous photos! You can check out the article in the Boulder Daily Camera at this link! Also, I've posted some more photos from our session here.
Face Fiesta on TV!
On January 13, I painted FOX 31's traffic anchor, Ken Clark, with a full Bronco helmet head for Colorado's Everyday Show! It was fast and furious and a whole lot of fun!! Here's Fox's link with a short video and a slide show of the process:
