(Art) Woman with Cheetah by Sudie Rakusin

Woman with Cheetah 2 © Sudie Rakusin

Artist’s NoteThe natural flow in my Feminist practice and Spiritual belief was to become an ardent and dedicated spokeswoman for animals and the environment. I am a vegan. My decision to stop eating meat was always an ethical and spiritual one. I cannot take another life for my subsistence. I believe animals have their own reason for being and they have the right to live out their purpose, not one we impose upon them. My art reflects my passion and love for animals as well as my respect and appreciation for the Earth. I paint, draw, and sculpt the world I dream of inhabiting. A place where the natural world is treated with deference and there is no hierarchy among humans and animals. In my world, we all walk the Earth in harmony. My art is the best way I know to express these feelings. www.sudierakusin.com

Beautiful drawing! I too am an ardent lover of animals and Nature has been both mother and father to me. Although I do not eat meant most of the time I am not a vegan/vegetarian because I am aware that plants suffer too when eaten… the naturalist in me reminds me that humans are omnivores and that it is perhaps the attitude I have towards the food I eat that is more important. My Indigenous roots remind me to give thanks for every life taken by another for food.
