About the Artist - Vanessa Rosen

Vanessa Rosen's fascination with henna traces back to her childhood in England, although opportunities for hands-on experience were limited until adulthood. As a bellydance instructor at a renowned Adelaide studio, Vanessa crossed paths with Jyothi, an Indian artist hired for a henna session at a bellydance function. Seizing the chance, Jyothi graciously offered Vanessa lessons in crafting her own natural henna paste from scratch, an opportunity Vanessa eagerly embraced.

This marked the inception of the solid foundation upon which "Velvet HENNA" would later thrive, now flourishing 18+ years down the road. Transitioning from a background in performing arts as a singer and actor, Vanessa directed her passion and commitment toward henna, transforming it into a joy-filled, natural henna-cantered practice. Her journey revolves around sharing the blessings, connections, and ancient rituals embedded in this vibrant art form. Diverging from being merely an edgy Western alternative to a tattoo, this art form finds its essence in living plant dye, encouraging a slowdown, embracing stillness, and fostering a sense of blessing, receiving, and connection.

Vanessa warmly extends an invitation to join her in experiencing the joy and self-care inherent in natural henna through hands-on workshops.
