Born in New York, Christina Alamo is a self-taught artist. Her journey started with an inspirational thought of the word “Mehndi”, and has developed into doing full body art. Her natural drawing style and love of mandalas easily transferred into being a henna artist, and then expanded into face painting and full body art. This art form has also influenced her love for photography. Combining both arts was a natural pairing.
Christina is also a NYS licensed Social Worker. Being aware of the power of art in the therapeutic process, she has been able to combine the art of Mehndi and Body art into a healing and transformational experience.
Christina has been doing body art for over 15 years. She has participated in many festivals, events and ceremonies. She can also be reached at gypsybyheart2000 [at[ yahoo.com.
