Meet Jes Saunders, the Artist:
Howdy! My name is Jes, and I sling henna... my love of this art form began when I was 17 years old. It immediately struck me as an incredibly beautiful, versatile art form, and I marveled that the rest of the world wasn't covered in it. I looked around my area for any sign of this mystical bedeckment, but never came across anyone who knew about it or offered it. By my college years, I was tired of the delay, and began stalking the Indian grocers. I picked up some books, and started experimenting. My results were not great, but I persisted, my love for it did not fade (no pun intended!).
Then, in 2001, I found Catherine Cartwright-Jones's fantastic website HennaPage.com, which blew the doors wide open. Many more years of experimentation took place, but with a vast pool of resources from which to draw. Fast forward to today, and I'm still fascinated with the stuff. I brew my own mix, roll my own cones, freehand all designs, and even dabble in guilding, glow-in-the-dark guilding, and white hennas. My style has evolved over the years, but I still relish a creative challenge, and enjoy co-manifesting new and exciting visions of impermanence.
