Her interest in the art of henna dates back to over 20 years ago, but it was only with the advent of a reliable Canadian source of fresh imported henna powders that she was able to begin her self-education in earnest. With her background in the fine arts and graphic design, it did not take long for her to gain an excellent proficiency in this ancient and noble artform.

Although she also works with traditional cultural designs, Capucine enjoys spinning her own take on henna imagery using both ancient and contemporary sources to create a style that is often described as "fusion" or "alternative" mendhi. She is always happy to create custom designs for your special needs; whether it is for a bride looking for a specific cultural style or someone who would like to experiment with more futuristic imagery. Capucine will gladly use your own reference material to create a unique piece of henna art just for you.

Capucine's henna artwork has been featured in the
Henna Tribe 2008 Wall Calendar, as well as the "Henna for Pakistan" henna design e-book fundraising project for Doctors Without Borders.
