Shining Light Prenatal Education is pleased to have Mary Carroll on board as our in-house Henna Artist. Henna is a plant, dehydrated and pulverized to a powder. When it is mixed into a paste it can be applied to the skin for a long lasting, but temporary design. Henna is used to decorate the skin in many cultures.
Mary is available for private sessions or for small groups. Her henna art is by appointment only. Pricing will vary by design. If you would like your pregnant belly decorated, please allow for 1-2 hours.
Please contact us to discuss your design and the correlating price.
Mary Carroll is a henna artist, birth doula, and Returned Peace Corps Volunteer. As a high school student, she studied abroad in India where she was introduced to the art of Mehendi (henna). After taking courses in India and practicing on her friends, she continued to develop her skills and experiment with different types of designs and making her own all-natural henna paste. She offers henna designs at local festivals, private henna parties, and children’s events. She is amazed with how children as young as 3 will sit still for henna designs and particularly enjoys working with pregnant moms (although their babies don’t usually sit still!). She is available by appointment at Shining Light Prenatal Education.
