Conversations with the Inspiring Neda Kerendian

Today we’d like to introduce you to Neda Kerendian.

Neda, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I’ve been creating for as long as I can remember and I just never really stopped. It’s sort of like this underlying line of goodness throughout my life. Whether it was small drawings on my lunch break or a larger series that requires more brain space, creating is something that has always and will always be a part of me in some form.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
I think there are struggles along any journey. It’s easy to get in your head about most things, but I think the most important thing is to just keep creating and to keep asking why. It’s easy to get stuck and to overthink, but it’s a balance of working through the questions while still allowing it to be fun.

We’d love to hear more about your art.
Right now, I’m creating paintings, drawings, and illustrations all surrounding ideas of acceptance and compassion. I hope to create little bits of magic that carry reminders to hold ourselves with more kindness – while still acknowledging how difficult that could be.

What do you feel are the biggest barriers today to female leadership, in your industry or generally?
Honestly, it’s not something I’ll dwell on. I think it’s more important to just make good work. To just create with honesty and joy and love. And to allow that to speak for itself.
