This first time mama drove all the way from Littleton to come to my studio for henna. This beautiful henna belly design began with a mandala around the belly button, flowing with leaves and flowers around it.
There is something so beautiful about a mother simply nourishing her baby ~ I love creating art that honors that. This flowery design feels goes from shoulder to shoulder, with matching henna on her hands.
Though I have lived in Boulder, Colorado since I was 11 years old it's not often I meet someone who was born here and treasures this city like I do. Anya requested I adorn her pregnant belly with the local mountainscape ~ the Flatirons of Boulder. Geese fly above the mountains with feathers drifting down one arm, and snowflakes down another. I really loved how this turned out!
