Henna artist Deepika Bhatt has been drawing in henna since she was seven years old. Born and raised in India, Deepika eventually went on to apprentice with three henna artists, and although she has her Ph.D. in genetics, her passion is henna painting.
Deepika returns to India every few years to learn what’s new and “hot” in henna. She treats it with the same respect as research. She has won numerous awards in India, the UK and the US. Many of Deepika’s designs stem from nature because she believes in “looking for beauty.”
