Professional Henna Artist Amanda Joy Gilbert of Happy Henna in Grand Rapids, has been designing henna since 2010. She found henna to be a form healing art therapy to both herself and others. While starting her business in 2015, she began volunteering her time once a month giving henna tattoos to cancer patients. This began a passion in her to bring beauty to women during not so beautiful circumstances, which inspired her to collaborate with other artists in creating Crowns of Courage Art Prize project. She is currently working on developing Crowns of Courage into a nonprofit. Check out more of her work on Instagram: @happyhennatattoo
