Julia Kuhns started Dancing Armadillos out of her love for creating. We started out offering henna and face painting. With the craziness of 2020 we shifted our focus to other art forms that we enjoy. Currently we are still offering henna, as a fun temporary body art made from plants. We also love creating all types of items from natural and recycled arts. We strive to have as little as possible manufactured new for our business and work to keep items out of landfills.
Julia grew up near the Twin Cities in Minnesota and has been making anything and everything she could since she was little. During her time at University in Wisconsin she met a local henna artist and was given the opportunity to work with her for several years and improve her henna and face painting skills. In the spring of 2017, she moved to Michigan to work on a farm. Through this job she was able to provide henna and face painting for the local farmers markets and officially create Dancing Armadillos. She has since moved back to Minnesota and has re-imagined Dancing Armadillos to provide the freedom to create many types of items and use all sorts of skills, all under the umbrella of sustainability, which is so important to her.
