On the beautiful event of Eid-ul-Fitr The Art Times sharing henna Art by nice henna artist Aroob Fatima Mallhi. She did some nice henna design as hobby and got good talent of mehndi designs. We collect some of her nice work and interview to share.
Mehndi is the application of henna as a temporary form of skin decoration in Pakistan, Nepal, India, and Bangladesh as well as by expatriate communities from those countries. Mehndi decorations became fashionable in the West in the late 1990s, where they are sometimes called henna tattoos. Henna is typically applied during special occasions like weddings and Muslim Festivals such as Eid-ul-Fitr and Eid-ul-Azha.

When did you start designing:
I wouldn’t call Henna art designing. but, since that’s what I do I’ll talk about it. I started applying henna about 5 years ago.
Little about your creativity process:
I always just dive in. When it comes to henna, I start out with the simplest of shapes, try to make an outline of the design and do the details later. Same goes with collage making.
Bit of daily routine:
I write everyday. I can’t go a single day without writing. I tumble a lot and use social netoworking sites a lot. I wish I cooked more often though.
Few lessons you want to share:
It’s no use doing art just because you want to impress people. Make sure that before you make anything creative, the aim must be to 1. express yourself 2. make yourself happy.
Your favorite artists/designers:
I don’t know any famous artists in my field. The only artists I have been exposed to are the ones I follow on deviantart and I apologize for not remembering their names.!

Even if you can’t draw a decent circle, no matter if you can’t paint a mona lisa, art still dwells within you. As long as you keep the creator alive inside you, life won’t feel empty.
