Houda Benslimane is a nomadic artist from Morocco who is on a journey – not just around the world, but to connect with herself on a deeper level. Art is central to her journey and is a means to learn more about herself, connect with others and communicate the lessons she’s learning along the way.
Houda expresses empathy, love, and enlightenment through many mediums, like photography, spoken word and jewelry. The piece featured on Bold & Herby Stellar Pretzel Braids is a painting titled, “Lost in the City” and represents the juicy and herbaceous aspects of life as well as the beauty that is sometimes harder to find.
Houda painted this piece while sitting at a cafe in Paris, France, quite literally, lost in the city.
