AWARD WINNING artist Connie Tu is a skilled practitioner of natural henna body art, passionate about the power of natural henna in raising wellbeing and self-confidence. Creating art with a natural eye for placement, balance and symmetry in contemporary designs – ideal for the modern mehndi lover seeking an alternative take on a 5000-year-old art form. Her welcoming, inspiring and wheelchair accessible artist’s studio is located in the Creative Arts Hub in the Q20 Theatre building on Dockfield Road, Shipley with appointments available to book online.
Established in 2016, ‘Created By Connie’ owned by Connie Tu has organically grown her business and bloomed in confidence as an intuitive, insightful henna artist for her clients. Having picked up her first henna cone in 2014 when inspired and educated by the wonderful henna artists of Bradford, she has been at the forefront of the digital renaissance in henna art. Her focus on understanding the ancient history of henna, as well as studying the modern scientific knowledge allows her to pay respects to the cultural, historical and spiritual connection that henna art provides. Now entering her fourth year as a full-time professional artist in henna with an established dedicated studio space in Shipley, Bradford she has developed a powerful brand of acceptance, wellbeing and professionalism in her contemporary henna art, often appealing to the modern British Asian bride who seeks to balance their traditional cultural heritage with their modern outlook on life. Her community work through the jointly owned social enterprise ‘Home of Henna CIC’ has fostered huge improvements in local henna industry knowledge and inspired several spinoff community groups throughout the UK (Nottingham, Norwich, York, London) which has positively contributed to the community spirit within the national henna industry as a whole, and increased the awareness of the dangers of imitation henna products.
