Let The Beauty You Love Be What You Do -Rumi
We hear over and over how relaxing the process of henna is, both for the recipient and the on-lookers. Many people report a deep sense of ease while having henna applied and are mesmerized as the design emerges. We arrive with our box of magic tools, including Aftercare instructions, body quality glitter, gems and 100% natural red-brown henna. ReMarkable Blackbird (Founded in 2006) will arrive at your door with designs ready to hand-draw to your unique liking. All of our artists are practiced in the art of Mehndi, both traditional and modern. We encourage you to ask for the “artist’s choice,” where you will enter into a collaboration with a seasoned artist who will create for you a one-of-a-kind custom design.
Located in Portland, Maine we work with any size event from a large corporate affair to a small party in your home. Fully licensed and insured nationwide and available for travel to events. Feel free to call or e-mail for a free phone consultation on your next function. Quite literally creating memorable events for years to come.
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 with her art.
Forming art has been a lifelong happening for Portland, Maine based artist, Genevieve Levin. A professional henna artist certified with the ICNHA (International Certification in Natural Henna Arts) since 2004, she is also a multi-media artist creating luminous, vibrant artwork with paper, acrylic, 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 Soaps has been well worth the initial risk.
Henna has brought Nev into a wide variety of environments; She is as adept at 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 their big day or people undergoing treatment for cancer.
She teaches beginning to advanced level workshops all over the country. Book a workshop, wedding, party, individual or small group appointment by emailing Remarkable Blackbird
