Meet our 2019 Henna Team
By: Krysteen ~
Marcia: is originally from Seattle and has been doing henna with Mehndi Madness for several years. She is also an Art Teacher and feels lucky to spend her time immersed in creation. She’s always in high spirits and loves being outside. The three words that best describe her is “Full of Adventure.” She especially loves nature, always hiking and camping around the PNW. Her Border Collie, Sky, is slowing down a bit now that she’s 9 and won’t go on the long hikes they were so fond of in her younger years. Instead there’s lots of fond memories, car rides and belly rubs. Her favorite magical creature is a Dragon because they are so smart and powerful. It must be a reflection of her true self because it is also her Chinese Zodiac. She likes to cook but doesn’t think she’s very good at it. And if there’s a chance to get Mexican take out, she’s all for it! She’s a bit petite, so if she could change one thing it would be to make herself taller so she could reach that top shelf. When it comes to henna or jagua, she prefers henna because of the earthy color. We’re so happy she has joined us for another summer!
Rebecca: We love her bright and open personality. Her favorite thing to do is drawing so Henna is the perfect job for her. She gets to draw awesome henna design all day! She hasn’t traveled much yet but if she had a superpower it would be teleportation so she could make up for lost time. Her favorite color is green because she likes being outdoors but I think it’s because it looks so good on her! She would rather drink a Mango Pineapple smoothie than anything else. She uses both sides of her brain and is finishing up a degree in Software Engineering. She loves math and solving problems. She has a crazy Weiner dog named Heidi and Costco Pizza is Rebecca’s favorite! She is our resident ginger, as Irish and Swedish as they come. She shares these traits with her favorite ginger, Madelaine Petsch, best known for her role on Riverdale as Cheryl Blossom. We look forward to working with her every year!
Madeline: Maddy is a native Puget Sounder and has been working with Mehndi Madness for several years as a party artist. This year she includes locations and festivals, becoming a full time artist. Her spirit animal is an Orca because they’re beautiful but dangerous when they need to be. She loves her dog Molly, 50% Lab, 50% Border Collie and 100% chicken as she is afraid of most things. Molly and Maddie spend their free time hiking. Her favorite color is purple and she’d be a happy camper if she could start every day with a quad shot iced latte. I mean, who wouldn’t! Her secret talent is peeling a banana with her toes and her dream job is whatever job she is currently working because she’s always living in the moment. We are so happy to make Maddie a part of the Mehndi Madness team.
Mariah: Mariah is the newest member of our Mehndi Madness team and art has always been a passion of hers. She splits her time between doing heart felt henna and being a preschool teacher. Born in Bellingham, she has recently moved back to the PNW after spending much of her childhood in Michigan. Her favorite thing about Michigan was all the water because she loves to swim. I guess she moved to the right place! There is no limit to swimming in Washington. She loves any pastime involving the outdoors, camping, hiking, a little bit of disc golf and boxing. That’s right, she can punch your lights out! If she invented a coffee drink it would be a Dirty Chai Latte with oat milk and spicy chai. She’s a cat person and prefers reading over movies. Her favorite kid’s movie is Pocahontas, talk about a passion for the outdoors! The grossest thing she’s ever eaten was Salmon Skin Sushi…never again! The three words that best describe her are compassion, preparation and joy! We are so lucky to have found her and expect to be dazzled by her all summer.
