KREE ARVANITAS is the former owner of internationally renowned Gilded Lilies Henna Arts in Seattle Washington, since 1996 one of the most creative and innovative henna services in the United States.
She is an experienced graphic artist, photographer and writer. Her passion for henna has taken her from dusty libraries to the medinas of Morocco, absorbing the history and language of this beautiful, traditional art.
She blends sensitive techniques of connection, tenderness and healing energy with superb artistry and a scholar's knowledge of traditional motifs, symbolism and styles.
Her broad experience includes ethnic celebrations of all kinds, holidays, private events, ethnic weddings, children's parties, ceremonies, corporate parties, teaching and extensive work in the Oriental, American Tribal and Folk Dance communities.
She is currently working on multiple painting projects incorporating henna design and paste into mixed media acrylic paintings and has shown her work at several venues around Seattle. More information about her artwork can be seen in her FLICKR PORTFOLIO which also includes her body painting and henna work.
Kree is also a founding member of HENNATRIBE.ORG, a non-profit organization with an online professional community devoted to the dispersal of accurate henna information; research & development; and linking globally through forums, projects and conferences. HennaTribe has now migrated to Facebook.
