Let The Beauty You Love Be What You Do -Rumi
The process of henna is relaxing, both for the recipient and the onlookers. Many people report a deep sense of ease while having henna applied and are mesmerized as the design emerges.

A Little About Genevieve Levin
Nev’s core belief about the world is that we are all connected through pattern both visual and contextual and she is passionate about exploring that connection in her art.
Making art has been a lifelong enterprise for Portland, Maine based artist Genevieve Levin. A professional henna artist certified with the ICNHA (International Certification in Natural Henna Arts) since 2004, Nev is also a multi-media artist creating imaginative, vibrant artwork with acrylic, paper, fabric, found objects, and all things that shine. After earning her BFA (’97) from The Maine College of Art, Nev spent nine years working as a studio potter and art educator, assisting people with special needs and the elderly to enhance their lives through creative expression. In 2006 Nev made the decision to pursue her dream of running her own business and has since been a full-time henna artist. Her success with two businesses, ReMarkable Blackbird and Blackbird Studios has been well worth the initial risk.
Henna has put Nev in a wide variety of environments; She is as comfortable presenting to large groups in libraries, henna conferences and schools as she is working in more intimate settings with mama’s-to-be for belly henna, brides on that big day or people undergoing treatment for cancer.
Nev teaches beginning to advanced level workshops all over the country. To book a workshop, wedding, party, individual or small group appointment email Remarkable Blackbird
