Who am I?

I am a self-trained henna artist, working around the South East. I have many years’ experience of applying henna/mendhi in a variety of styles, including traditional Indian and Arabic patterns. I mix my own paste using henna, powder, lemon juice and essential oils, and never use chemicals.
