Body of work

A couple of days had passed since I did bridal mehndi in Cancun, and already I was getting antsy to do some more art. After all, there is only so much sunbathing on the beach one can do before getting a bit restless. Luckily, my friends at Utopia Tulum, the gorgeous yoga retreat I am staying at, were up for some artwork, as well as some of my "regulars" here in Mexico. They usually let me freestyle, so I get to be really creative and try out new ideas and styles. Also, check out the ring in the last photo. One of the girls staying here is an amazing jewelry designer who lives in Bali and creates gorgeous, nature inspired silver and semi-precious stone jewelry. I may or may not have acquired a couple of pieces for myself.  You'll notice the stain that my friend gets is pretty incredible. While her skin is fair and there is a lot of contrast because of that, she is able to get great color by being really diligent about avoiding water for the first 24 hours and using oil on it before getting it wet. 

Evening at Utopia Tulum is just magical!
