“What motivates me most is the desire to get better. I don’t necessarily have a need to show off my art ability for me it’s more about working diligently and improving my skills. I want the people in my life to see what can be accomplished when you dedicate yourself to something. I have a passion for body arts. I have been practicing the art of Mehndi with Henna for 20 years now having had many celebrity clients. Henna is a very unique art form because it incorporates a bit of science as well. not too much it is a very cultural experience and I try my best to honor the history and culture in every way possible.
Hello Kimm! How long have you been an artist and how did you get into art?
Kimm: It all began in my Mothers womb. My first creations were the stretchmarks my growing body engraved upon her outer casing. And the love that filled her young heart as I kicked and thrashed within her.
Do you see your art as serving a purpose beyond art?
Kimm: When doing henna on clients I hope to help promote positive body image as well as educate them about the history and culture from which henna originates. I consider myself to be an entertainer as well as an artist and I aim to give them an experience that they will remember warmly.

Kimm: I just want to inspire the people around me.
What are your plans for the future?
