In 2002, I was lucky enough to get into the biggest State Fair in the country, right here in my home town of St. Paul, MN. 

I started out with a 10x10 space, just me and a Glue Boy.  Within a few years, my booth has expanded exponentially, and in 2012 we were fortunate to add a second booth at the International Bazaar. 

Of course, I didn't get where I am all on my lonesome!  I had a lot of help from a very special group of talented artists who I am proud to call friends, too. 

Each year, we seem to gather more wonderfully talented artists to join the Henna Crew at the Minnesota State Fair.  It's been a wonderful journey, a crazy ride and a great learning experience.
