I am professional henna artist who has been working magic with henna for over 22 years 🙂 My passion for henna started when I was 9 years old. It was one of those festival days. I went to my neighbor and requested her to make henna on my hand and she declined my request as she was too tired from the days work 🙂
My mother realized that my own artistic ability was starting to show in my drawings and paintings. She encouraged me to try henna as part of my artistic medium. I started doing henna as a hobby. What started out as a hobby for me became a full time job!
My first contract doing bridal henna for a traditional Indian bride was a referral from a salon owner who saw my work when I was fourteen years old. Since then I never looked back. Over the period, I have had thousands of bridal appointments and countless clients. I am fortunate to have a client base that is spread over many countries! I started my own business, Kadambari Arts LLC, a few years ago through which we cater to private parties and bridal henna. We also make Henna inspired designs on different objects such as candles, pillow cases, canvas etc!
They say art is the new meditation. Henna is more than just an art form for me. It has become a part of me and with every design, my passion towards henna art only grows. Simply put, it is my stress buster.
I try to create my own signature creation with every single pattern. My feelings and instincts guide me through the creative process. Here are some of my other projects with henna!
I have been fortunate to make the closest friends and connections through henna. I have henna art to thank for the fondest memories in my life.
