I'm glad you're here!
I’m a native of Austin, TX…South Austin to be more specific! I started doing henna professionally in 1997, then began teaching poi (fire dancing) in 1998. I added hula hoop instruction in 2006 & that is my current obsession. I love to teach beginners, but I can help anyone with their flow. I will help you to express yourself through art or through motion...or both!
Thank you for visiting!
Being adorned with henna is joyful but also meditative, it teaches you to appreciate the beauty & impermanence in life…to enjoy the moment. Or it can be used for silly fun! I take appointments for individuals & small groups in my studio, or I can travel to you for 3 or more. I prefer to take my time with clients, therefore I don't work large events & I never vend. I also teach individual & group henna classes. Click on the Henna link above for more information & a gallery. Contact me directly to set up an appointment.
This section includes info for hooping & poi (fire spinning) classes. One flow art often leads to another & I'm always learning new props. I also currently practice with flags & staff, plus long & short-string flow wands. I teach all of these props & I also sell custom hoops & gyrohoops.

This is a new exploration for me, utilizing my skills in henna to create art. Currently I'm using real henna to stain wood & applying acrylics on mixed media backgrounds. Click on the Art link above for more information & a gallery.
