A LITTLE ABOUT US
Let The Beauty You Love Be What You Do -Rumi
We hear over and over how relaxing the process of henna is, both for the recipient and the on-lookers. Many people report a deep sense of ease while having henna applied and are mesmerized as the design emerges. We arrive with our box of magic tools, including Aftercare instructions, body quality glitter, gems and 100% natural red-brown henna. ReMarkable Blackbird (Founded in 2006) will arrive at your door with designs ready to hand-draw to your unique liking. All of our artists are practiced in the art of Mehndi, both traditional and modern. We encourage you to ask for the “artist’s choice,” where you will enter into a collaboration with a seasoned artist who will create for you a one-of-a-kind custom design.
Located in Portland, Maine, we work with any size event from a large corporate affair to a small party in your home. Fully licensed and insured nationwide and available for travel to events. Feel free to call or e-mail for a free phone consultation on your next function.
Genevieve Levin a.k.a Nev
Nev’s core belief about the world is that we are all connected through pattern, both visually and contextually. She is passionate about exploring that connection with her art.
Nev is a multi-media artist in her hometown of Portland, Maine. She enjoys creating luminous, vibrant artwork with henna, paper, acrylic, fabric, found objects, sound and all things that shine. She fills up her days DJ'ing, dancing and keeping her eye and heart firmly fixed of finding the beauty in the world. Nev has spent her time adorning and enlivening the lives of many since becoming a full time henna artist in 2006. Genevieve Levin earned her BFA (’97) from The Maine College of Art and was a studio potter and an art educator who worked with people with special needs and the elderly to enhance their lives through creative expression. She is fully licensed and certified with the ICNHA (International Certification in Natural Henna Arts) since 2004.
Nev's specialty and passion is working with Mamas-to-be doing belly henna. She teaches workshops throughout the world (beginning level to advanced) and enjoys presenting at schools, conferences and libraries. You will often find her working festivals in summer and autumn and in more intimate settings with brides for their big day and with people undergoing treatment for cancer.
