Why I am vegan
"I feel eating meat is so ingrained in our culture that it is done without giving a thought to the living creature that has had to die to provide, at most, a 15 minute moment of satisfaction. I understand these ways as these were my eating habits until I took a long, hard look at myself. Thankfully I did and now I lead a happy life without having the responsibly of a living creature's death on my hands!
Why I support Viva's Art for Animals project
"I want my skills as an artist to support valuable organisations such as Viva! and I look forward to donating 20% of every sale of my animal portraits & animal commissions to Viva!"
