Mehndi Glass - Pretty Unique Glassware
Hi, my name is Lesley McDougall, and I am the artist behind Mehndi Glass.
Mehndi Glass was born from the desire to create art that is both timeless and functional, yet still individual.
Ever since I was a little girl growing up in Manchester England, I have been passionate about making things for others. Ask anyone of my friends or family (they probably still have that pom pom monkey or egg shell hairbrush kicking around somewhere!).
I have dabbled (and still do) in many types creative pursuits, from the traditional fine arts of watercolor and oils to the crafts of jewelry making, decoupage and quilting. I first discovered glass painting as a teen and it has always been the medium I have returned to. The fluidity of the paint, it's textured finish and the stained glass effects it produces are stunning.
I love to explore other cultures through art and was drawn to Mehndi about 5 years ago. As I began to study this ancient art I was Inspired by it's traditions, symbolism and gorgeous intricate patterns. I often follow traditional designs but many are injected with my own whimsical twist.
Designing, experimenting and painting on a daily basis scratches my ever present itch to be creative, and it's fulfilling to know that that each piece will be treasured and celebrated for years to come.
I come from a background of over 15 years in the Hospitality Industry working in luxury hotels & fine restaurants around the world. Quality & customer service is paramount to me. I put my heart and soul into each and every glass and offer my customers a friendly and individual shopping experience.
I have painted art glasses for all sorts of occasions from bridal showers to graduations gifts, weddings to client "thank yous"...and customized for all sorts of wonderful and unusual requests "Can you Mehndi an octopus?", "Ad spectacles to a peacock?" If I believe I can do it, I will, and I love a challenge.
Now you tell me your story...
Think of me as your personal artist; original glass art created just for you! So don't be shy, the more I know about you or the story of who the gift is intended for the more personal your purchase will be.
"Let me create something beautiful for you!"
After all my worldly travels, I have settled in Ontario Canada in a little village an hour from the Nations capital. I enjoy happiness from my family and the little things in life, the freedoms I am fortunate to have and the friendships and relationships that nurture me to bloom in life and in creativity.
Hope your glass is always half full.
