Skin is Anisha Kanakia Sanghani’s canvas, and her intricate masterpieces—henna designs, painted faces, and nail art—enjoy fleeting but beautiful lives on their wearers. She has been embellishing skin with henna—a paste made of all-natural ingredients such as lemon, eucalyptus, and coffee—for more than two decades, drawing from both traditional and contemporary influences to conjure her designs. In those years, she has decorated skinscapes at a bevy of public events and taught others to delineate whorls and loops at the Fitton Center for Creative Arts. The portable nature of her craft lets her practice at festivals, enliven girls’ nights, and visit study groups to etch palms with decoratively concealed chemistry equations before an exam. Although Anisha concentrates on temporary, cheek- and palm-sized work, not all of her handiwork has disappeared from this earth; she also applies her talents to murals, portraiture, and graphic design.
