Hi, I’m Zeena and I currently reside in Cambridgeshire. I’m a vegetarian because I cannot find any good reason not to be! There are so many positive things to gain, for us as individuals, as a community, for nature, our animal friends and the world as whole from being a vegetarian. The same thing cannot be said for not being one. I wholeheartedly support VIVA!’s campaigns for the simple reason that they do wonderful wonderful work, not just by actively helping to try and eradicate animal abuse but in educating and helping raise awareness of various important issues.
It took myself a while to garner the courage to draw my first love; animals. But once I took the plunge, it has led to donating work to the Dogue De Bordeaux Welfare group (which has been auctioned) and I am currently in the process of working on a series of Greyhound inspired greeting cards to be printed up and donated to the Retired Greyhound Trust, amongst other things. I also draw portrait type caricatures, other portraits and make various types of greeting cards.
When I heard about VIVA!’s fantastic Art for Animals campaign, I felt my art could be a way for me to try and help. Because of this, 75-100% of the proceeds of the framed one-off original pieces (not prints) that I am donating to VIVA! will go straight to them and any money raised will be paid directly to VIVA!
Hope you enjoy them J
