For me, it is extremely rewarding whenever I see someone happy and inspired because of my work. I also love to paint on mixed media and show my skills on makeup.

Hello I'm Neha currently residing at Dublin, California with my husband, Ashish. I'm a teacher in my daytime and a passionate crafter after that. I love creating everything handmade and feel love can be spread with a little bit of handmade kindness.

      I started crafting at an early age and have tried my hands in different kinds of arts. I love to experiment and try new mediums. 

       Clay modelling, always fascinated me and somehow I had an inclination towards sculpting.. I love recreating cartoon characters into pencil caps, key chains, magnets etc., and as a elementary school teacher, I get a lot of cute admirers for the same.. 

I'm delighted to be a part this amazingly talented team of The Craft Shop and I thank Priya Sivaraj, for giving me this opportunity..
