"I want to let you know what a HUGE hit the henna party was for Kate! The girls loved it and are still talking about it. Kate says it was the best party she's ever had. Thanks for everything. I know Kate felt like her birthday was very special." - Amy J.
"Thank you so much for coming to do henna for my birthday party! Your work was truly amazing, and the event created such a lovely memory for all of us! My hands are absolutely gorgeous! I have three small cousins coming to visit today for Thanksgiving, and I know they'll be absolutely enamored by the designs. I will be sure to advertise your expertise around school - you might have a lot more sweet 16-ers asking for you! :D" - Chloe S.
"Thank you so much for all of your hard work. It really did pay off and looks fantastic. The golds and shimmer added so much to each look. The intricate patterns of the designs and then the rough rugged styles. I loved everything you did!!!! I think everyone has a new found appreciation for your work and not just as “The Henna Lady” but as an artist." - Kelly N. Saunders

"Colleen was and is an amazing lady. She is not only talented, but kind, gentle, and spirited. I was instantly comfortable with her and she added a lot more than henna to the event (including music)!" -Aimee, Charlotesville, VA (Henna Belly):
Excellent artwork, very friendly and...
Colleen has studied the craft and art of henna for many years now. She applies the same energy and passion toward applying henna as she does with her reiki. How amazing to get henna applied by her! She values wholeness and a natural way of life as well as spirituality and this all comes out when she applies henna! She makes her own paste using the finest ingredients and essential oils...Whether it be a henna maternity sitting (mendhi on baby belly), a wedding party, or on your child (MY BOYS LOVE HENNA by Colleen!!!!)....there is a special quality and pure beauty that emerges that is a beautiful experience/process and a beautiful result...She's the best at what she does. I highly recommend Henna by Colleen
truly talented artist!
