SUNSHINE HENNA BODY ART
Owner and Artist Allison Loraine
STORY OF AN ARTIST
Allison is a passionate artist based in the Kalamazoo area who strives to create unique and customized designs for all of her clients. Henna is a shared experience. Sharing the art of Henna is an opportunity to slow down, be present, and connect with ourselves and each other.
Allison has had a special interest in henna design since she was a young artist, mesmerized by patterns and symbols she simply could not put the henna cone down once she picked it up for the very first time.
About 6 years ago she developed a friendship with a local henna artist in her home town of Grand Rapids who became her artistic mentor. She was able to work along side her as an apprentice and learn the history, composition, and applications of Henna. While battling health complications Allison moved to Kalamazoo in January of 2018. She found comfort in her creativity and the courage to build her own henna brand here and call this community home.
She has been welcomed and embraced by the art community in Kalamazoo and now teaches henna classes downtown at the Colors and Cocktails studio as well as selling some of her other handmade items in their boutique.
"I love the unique rewards and challenges Henna has given me as an artist. I enjoy experimenting with new ideas and sharing this beloved art form which has allowed me to continue my own healing journey while sharing its beauty and benefits with others."
Sunshine Henna uses body art quality (BAQ) henna and all natural ingredients to mix the perfect henna paste for all skin types that delivers a rich lasting stain without harmful chemicals or preservatives.
