Art has always been in my blood. My multifaceted tendencies could be partly explained by my upbringing. I was born in Hong Kong, grew up in San Francisco/USA and Vancouver/Canada, and now live in Wiggensbach, a village in southern Germany.
In 2011 I found ceramics to be my medium and started a 3-year apprenticeship with a pottery shop in Germany. There I was first exposed to the power of patterns on pots (the shop has a series of dotted-patterned pots). During that time I was able to explore my creative ideas to my heart's content, something I am still doing today in the ceramic studio in Kempodium where I also teach ceramic courses for adults and children.
My fascination with henna began in 2016 when I got my first henna in India. To me it was like discovering the ultimate pattern form. It awoke a sleeping tiger inside me and sparked my interest as it was so similar to what I was already exploring in ceramics. I was so fascinated by it that I immediately decided to also become a mehndi artist and to combine those patterns with my ceramics.
Here you see some of the work my love of clay and mehndi has produced. Come back often as this journey is just beginning and continues to grow everyday!
