When I make a painting I always test my colors on bits of paper. I’ve taken those fragments of history & used them as backdrop for my drawing/painting practice. I have always loved mehndi/henna. It amazes me-all the individual gestures that work together to become story, a whole. Mehndi is like handwriting. These paintings are me practicing my handwriting.
