One of our favorite blog, Present and Correct, posted an article that we just had to share. Azra Khamissa is a chiropractor, handbag designer and henna artist. She is known for her non-traditional spin on this ancient form of body art, henna. Instead of drawing traditional paisley shapes and floral themes, her designs are minimal and more contemporary. The Dubai-based artist creates intricate geometric shapes and minimal single-line designs. Her job as a chiropractor greatly influences her work: â€œI look at the hand as a whole, so I use the joints and the different planes, and try to incorporate the whole hand in the designâ€.
