Julia, pictured left wearing her own amazing t-shirt design, is a Santa Cruz based professional henna aritst. Julia works with children as a teacher in Santa Cruz, and is available for parties and events in the South Bay Area for henna body art and freehand glitter tattoos.
“The intricacy of traditional henna designs has never failed to amaze me. The combinations of a few basic repeating patterns are truly infinite and I have always found solace and peace with these never-ending creations. I am a self-taught artist and love working with henna paste and other types of mediums (canvas, acrylic, pen & ink, body art paints and tattoo design) to create self-expressive art all based on perfect flow and movement within the design itself. Merging this, with ancient traditional henna patterning, to achieve something the eye looses itself within is my ultimate goal. I also LOVE photography and see this as just another way to express myself. – Julia Miho”
