Capucine – Henna Montreal
Capucine is an experienced professional henna body artist with a background of over 30 years as a trained illustrator and graphic & multimedia designer. She is considered Montreal’s foremost “Fusion Style” henna body artist.
Capucine has had training in the Creative & Fine Arts and has received a degree in Illustration & Design from Dawson College, as well as a background in Education with a specialty in the Teaching of Art from McGill University in Montreal. With her background in the fine arts and graphic design, it did not take long for her to gain an excellent proficiency in the ancient and noble art form of henna.
Capucine uses only the purest and safest of ingredients for henna body art; fresh organic henna powders that she now imports herself directly from India, and high quality essential oils such as Organic Cajeput and Bulgarian Lavender.
Although she also works with traditional cultural designs, Capucine enjoys spinning her own take on henna imagery using both ancient and contemporary sources to create a style that is often described as “fusion” or “alternative” mendhi. She is always happy to create interesting and unique henna designs for her clients.
Capucine’s henna artwork has been featured in the Henna Tribe 2008 Wall Calendar, as well as the “Henna for Pakistan” henna design e-book fundraising project for Doctors Without Borders. She is also well-known for her aboriginal and native american style henna designs. A status Indian of the Membertou Mi’kmaq First Nation, Capucine has participated in numerous powwows and aboriginal events as well as pagan and tribal festivals where her original and custom henna designs are in great demand.

Pagan Owl’s Nest & Food Services
During the festival, Jean-Marc, aka “Pagan Owl” can be found at either his Sarong booth, or his food booth.
Pagan Owls Nest provides sarongs, both standard and Goddess size. (He also offers selling space for your items for a small commission. Contact him for more info.)
Pagan Owls Food Services will be providing food and beverages this year. I was thinking of offering sausages, hotdogs and burgers most time on request, and a simple breakfast of eggs, sausage, bacon, and home fries, OR pancakes and french toast with bacon and sausage. Offerings will be based on popular demand, so please contact Jean-Marc in advance regarding your preferences.

The Kilt Lady
Shahna has been a musician since 1987 when she took up the classical guitar. Over the years she has played a number of musical instruments; from guitar, to French horn, harp, and finally bag pipes and drums. Her current musical endeavors include learning the Irish, or Uilleann Pipes, and tootling on tin whistles.
When she’s not piping and drumming “The Kilt Lady” has been found in past years introducing Music in the Pines goers to the delights of the Kilt, and its many accoutrements.
