I love creating Intricate designs that stem from a single black seed and grow organically. I practice the repetition of simple and complex shapes and incorporate this echoing of shapes into most of my art. I find the process of creating these shapes meditative and have been known to sometimes zen out into a trance-like state! I generally use good quality black ink markers, however am not adverse to using Copic markers to create coloured works of similar design.
Through my research into Arabic and Indian mehandi designs I’ve noticed that the drawings I was doing intrinsically mirror many of the shapes and patterns used in traditional mehandi designs. So taking this artistic expression one step further I use organic henna to create whimsical body art using my original designs – a truly enjoyable and fun medium. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in my line drawings or body art.
