About The Artist


Karyn Alzayer is a fully insured henna artist who has been practicing henna throughout the Greater Boston area since 2012. She holds a great respect for the traditions of henna and has devoted much of her time to learning about and guiding others to honor the artwork style and cultural traditions surrounding henna and its use.

In addition to henna as traditional body art, Alzayer has also worked to apply henna-style artwork to many types of items including furniture, musical instruments, fabric, and vehicles.

Having spent almost a decade as an elementary classroom music teacher prior to her career as an artist, Alzayer draws on her extensive educational training when working with groups, teaching classes, and explaining her process.
