Ravie Kattaura has been a henna artist since 1987, specializing in bridal henna designs. Henna on candles began when, in October 2002, she happened to doodle on a candle with some leftover henna, and never gave it a second glance. Friends and family, however, saw the hennaed candle, and asked her to make some for them. Pretty soon, she found herself very busy embellishing candles, and decided to venture our formally.
She spent the next four years on a great deal of research to come up with that just right way of doing it, that just right mix of everything...a never ending process of experimenting and improving to get it just right.
Ravie lives in Fremont, CA, with her daughter, Simran. She enjoys her daytime work as a software engineer in the Silicon Valley, but still finds time to pursue her passion for henna over the weekends.
