Elizabeth Silbernagel (Artist/ Director of Simple Joy Arts).
As a little girl, Elizabeth imagined herself in heaven one day getting to paint rainbows from morning till night. She wanted to grow up to be an Artist. Upon entering grade school, Elizabeth’s attention was diverted by the many other childhood activities. Though remaining a creative person, it wasn’t until she graduated from college at North Central University where she majored in Cross-Cultural Studies that she rediscovered her calling to be an Artist. Following her many travels overseas and work with children both nationally and internationally, Elizabeth began working as a Face Painter and Henna Artist. She now finds herself doing just what her little heart wanted all along, Painting Rainbows! She has also spent time in India and Africa where henna finds its roots and is a normal part of the everyday life.
