This life we's strange, painful at times, but oh so beautiful.

I am a fusion dance artist and teacher, a fire dancer, and a visual artist. I draw inspiration from nature, music, and the amazing people that come into my life. I am also a conservationist who makes jewelry and found object multimedia craft type art in my spare time (when I'm not reading, writing, or lighting things on fire and dancing around with them). I love to dance barefoot on the beach, watch the stars move inexorably across the heavens, and to laugh with the people that I love. I am currently based in Greenville SC, working with Discordia Arts to provide unique and exciting entertainment to the Upstate.

Henna from the first Henna Day at Raspberry Moon Salon

I had a wonderful time at Raspberry Moon yesterday. If you're looking to improve your complexion or have a relaxing facial, get a wax, or a manicure, you couldn't find a better place!

I was amazingly lucky - the clients that came in for henna were all super fun women, and I had a blast getting to work on some of my original designs, some traditional pieces, and some based on my mentor's (Elizebeth of Crimson Art Henna) work. I didn't get pictures of everything, but I did remember to take some photos. All in all, I had a spectacular day, and I hope to get to do it again sometime soon!
