enjoy creating beautiful silks for myself and my students. Each is
unique. Each one has a personality.
Henna or mehndi is from the culture of India, and is
traditionally used to decorate the hands and feet of a bride before her wedding. Henna patterns are very striking if
properly done. Each summer I conduct a henna party and workshop at my studio.
Dancing is one way in which I express my innermost
emotion. Writing poetry is another, but the times when I feel I am truly at my best are when the two come together and
I can dance my poems or write my dance.
Eastern rhythms are so different from what western
ears are accustomed to. Every bit I learn about drumming improves my dance.
Painting & Drawing
I reveal my thoughts and feelings in dance and poetry,
then reinterpret the words and movements in oils and watercolors.
I also find artistic expression in modeling for
professional photographers, artists and sculptors. I often pose dancing with silks dyed in patterns of my own creation,
or with henna markings or body paintings of my own design.
I remain first and foremost a dancer. Experience the
poetry of the soul. Let yourself become a part of the energy of the dance. Join the falconess in flight.
