COLLEEN HELLER has been practicing the art of mehndi since 2000. She first was introduced to the henna on Hilton Head Island in 1996, and soon after, moved to Edison, NJ where she improved her skills after visiting many of the shops in the Little India section of nearby Iselin, NJ. 2016 marks her 11th full-time season in the Richmond area.
Her specialty is freehand application using henna paste and cones she makes herself. She enjoys the traditional Indian and Arabic designs as well as the flowing, flowery designs of the UK Style.
She is an Internationally Certified Artist of Natural Henna Arts and a member of the Face Painting and Body Art Association. She is also a mother of two, and a multi-instrumentalist and part-time music teacher.
She is a regular vendor with GrowRVA (formerly The Market Umbrella)... Check the calendar for details!
