What a surprising pleasure it was talking to Neeta Sharma for this episode. It really shouldn’t be such a surprise because everyone told me how sweet and generous and knowledgeable she is, and she did not disappoint. I don’t know if Neeta could hear it but I was smiling on the other end of the line. As always, the interview taught me so much; I continue to think of these interviews as my own private therapy sessions which I decide to share with all of you.   You’re most welcome!

I’ve been keeping an eye on Neeta over the years as I worked to hone my bridal henna skills.  She seems a bit shy about sharing her work and so I kind of lost touch with her.  Then I saw a bunch of her new work as part of a mehndi artist competition and I was blown away all over again by her level of detail, the fineness of her lines and the originality of her layout.  I kind of feel like I discovered a new henna artist but it’s just Neeta being excellent!  If you haven’t seen her work in a while you’re in for a treat.

Knowing Neeta only through her work and her reputation I didn’t know how the conversation would go so I had a lot of questions just in case I needed to fill time. Fortunately she is a fount not only of information about henna, but also very interesting insights into creativity and attitude making my job that much easier. I have a sneaking suspicion that I will have more questions for her which will require another Neeta episode.
