My Story

Artist Statement


I adopted henna art while I found myself traveling across the world and meeting several artists, one of them a fine arts jeweler who practiced henna art on the side. My own background in the arts, my love for painting, decoration mixed with my long time interests in the healing arts brought me to to the ancient art of henna design.

In 2006 I spent some time in a small village near Aswan, Egypt. There I was introduced to Nubian and Arabic designs.

I love creating the traditional Indian Mogul patterns, but my favorite henna and jagua designs are inspired by 1930's art nouveau's vine work.

Henna design continues to inspire my love for art combined with my appreciation of Egyptian and Indian cultures.  Now almost two decades later as a professional artist, I have had the privilege to meet hundreds of people from a variety of cultural backgrounds all who also love henna and jagua decorative body design.
