PREMIER PSYCHIC IN NEW YORK, NY!
Active for over twenty years as an artist and performer, Vera has been the long-term top-rated "Psychic" in "New York, NY" here and elsewhere. Although primarily a psychic reader / advisor (Divinata), she also exercises her skills and love of art with henna designs and face & body painting/art (AboutFacePaint).
A reader/advisor for corporate, private, and community events as well as private clients, Vera is comfortable in both high-pressure and relaxed party environments. Her insights emerge through the use of symbolic divination tools including tarot cards, crystal ball, and tea leaves; and directly via palmistry, handwriting analysis, numerology, dream interpretation, and face and lip reading.
Vera is striking, articulate, and compassionate, bringing every bit of her life experience, in addition to the cues from her tools of divination, to helping the person for whom she is reading. Her demeanor, professional background, and familiarity with diverse cultures make her well-suited for black-tie events, and her social conscience particularly effective at fundraisers.
Vera's Slavic heritage provided the rich tradition through which she became aware - through a lifetime of more-than-coincidental events and insights - of her sensitivity. Her broad experience as both an MBA'ed professional in the corporate world, and a working visual artist and musician, lets Vera relate to the needs of her clients in beneficial - but also practical - readings. But above all, her empathy establishes the rapport that's at the heart of her reading style.
In the spirit of entertainment, she usually appears in something with an exotic flair, including mystical, gypsy, Renaissance, and something akin to - colorfully, creatively - corporate. She always brings an array of atmospheric tools and decorations for the table, and is keenly aware of making a complete and memorable impression on the guests.
Depending on the nature of the engagement, a reading will last from 5-6 minutes (a fast but reasonably satisfying pace) to 20+ minutes (giving the luxury of a more in-depth experience). She can also go into "flash reading mode", basically giving a positive / negative indication in a tarot reading along with a prominent theme, or the two or three most salient characteristics in a person's palm.
A gifted artist, Vera loves to "decorate the guests"! With her background in fine and graphic art, she creates beautiful, whimsical designs to delight the heart of the toughest customer, big or small. She offers henna / mehndi designs (a great complement to psychic readings!), free-hand glitter "tattoos", and painted face & body designs.
She revels in creating delightful custom designs, from a personalized bouquet of flowers, to a full-face (and -head) Venetian / Mardi Gras mask, to a dinosaur playing catch. And because "big kids" love being painted as much as little ones, the designs can be discreet, elegant, or boldly announce YOUR favorite team!
Vera's henna recipe includes only highest-quality natural ingredients - certainly no "black henna", and similarly she only uses highest-quality non-toxic cosmetic products - including Mehron theatrical make-up, luminous eye shadows, and cosmetic glitter.
