A strong background in the visual arts and enthusiasm for history come together in her bold modern henna designs; which reflect influences ranging from west african patterns to collograph printmaking to sacred geometry mathematics. You can more of her work at, and on her website

Rachel Goldman (aka Bella Henna) is an artist from Cincinnati, Ohio.   She first encountered henna while studying in Morocco and has been fascinated by the ephemeral art of mehndi ever since.  

She began offering her mehndi services in 2012, when an article in Her Magazine containing her artwork and phone number hit the stands.  

She has been busy henna-ing ever since!
