My Story

Meet Neenu Gupta

owner Neenu GuptaGrowing up, I loved colors and my favorite festival was “Holi,” also known as “Festival of colors!” I was amazed by all the beauty in nature and how the sky changed colors. Whenever I saw beautiful scenery, I would wish that I could somehow capture it in a jar and bring it out whenever I wanted…. I know now it was my love and passion for art that made me feel and think that way! I ended up studying Fashion Design and Merchandising, which made me realize how much I love to create and play with colors.

My job kept me away from colors for quite some time, until one day I went to a Paint & Sip party with my friends at Bottle & Bottega…and it rekindled my romance and passion for art and colors.

The moment I entered the studio, I knew I had found what I had been looking for (read: Soul Mate)! Life is stressful and we all need an outlet. Bottle & Bottega uncorks the inner artist in us, helps us explores the passion within and inspires us to create our own life’s masterpiece.
