Recently, I've been getting a lot of question on how to apply henna in a professional, clean and fast way. The trick is practice, practice and practice. When I finished my MBA I got married and wanted to start a family, as a result I put my career in information management on hold. Bored at home and with the financial stresses of being newly weds and a recent grad I decided to start my henna business.
IMO to be successful at anything, you must LOVE doing it. I love the the art of henna, it has been a passion of mine since I was a child. It's not primarily for the money (although it helps :)). That being said, how can you go from a good artist to a great one? Here are some tips;
-Practice! One technique I used was to apply henna on a ceramic plate. You can use paper but reusing ceramic plates is more environmentally friendly. I have also used mirrors and glass.
-Educate yourself! Understand the different styles of henna, this is essential when I am dealing with the vast array of cultures. Arabic, indo-pak, modern, Moroccan etc. There are a ton resources out there, just Google it.
-Watch other artists apply henna. The grip of the cone, the pressure applied, the position of your subject, their posture etc. I am in the process of creating a Youtube series that will show the various techniques. There are some great video, simply search Youtube.
-Ask me! I am more than happy to help :)
Have a wonderful day!

Leezee’s Glitter Gel for body art
At the first glance you will be admiring floral patterns on this canvas and will be wondering about the meaning of center object. This canvas art has a philosophy behind it.
One of my lovely clients came over and asked me if I can understand and portrait her idea on the canvas. It was quite interesting and challenging task. I grabbed a pen a paper and asked her to go ahead and explain her idea. I made notes on the one side of paper and drew a rough sketch on the other side of paper (in this way I save papers, trees and planet).We had a one hour session of discussion and then she left happily.
My challenge was to make this 45cm X 60cm canvas only in 36 hours and taking care of two toddlers at the same time. However when there is a will, there is a way. I made this master piece by working late night after putting my boys to bed.
This canvas art was in my clients hands on time. This canvas is a present for a bride and groom from 19 little cousins. I used Silver, green and mauve glitters to coordinate it with the wedding theme colors. The hands in the middle symbolize that all 19 cousins are praying for the bride and groom for their life time happiness and prosperity. The names of all cousins are written in Arabic calligraphy in heart shaped patterns to show their love.
It was an amazing feeling when I handed it over to my glad and smiling client. She was amazed how she can view her vision beautifully drawn on the canvas.
