About Me

painting of a sunflower

I am a freelance henna artist, compulsive doodler and interested in all things textile, colorful, henna, cultural, musical, bread baking, cultured foods, and gee-whiz science. I may not understand a lot, but I’m having a lot of fun learning! This blog is a meandering on life, the universe and the creative process. I’ll share what I know, lay down some dilemmas, and hopefully learn a thing or two.
