A LITTLE ABOUT US

"Within you is the divine capacity to manifest and attract all that you need or desire."  Wayne Dyer

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. 

 
Dropping you a note to let you know how well your program was received by our audience. The comments were over-the-top extraordinary. It was quite lovely to see mothers and daughters, grandmothers and grandsons, and adults who have never before attended library programs thrilled by an afternoon spent with you. You are a true artist for sure and we deeply appreciate your willingness to travel from Maine to dazzle East Hampton, CT.

You are the best Henna artist ever! I got so many emails about how much the henna was enjoyed at the wedding. Thank you for being so flexible with all the craziness and really making it a great experience for all! We were not just pleased, we were thrilled with your work. I’d feel comfortable speaking with anyone who wanted to know more.
