Raised in Queens, Bruce Zeines's decision to be an artist came at an early age, and shaped his career as an illustrator and graphic designer. He studied fine art and graphic design at The School of Visual Arts in NY. His published work has appeared in national and international publications. As a graphic designer he has worked for corporate and institutional clients for over 35 years. “My life has always been one of creative enterprise. My work seeks to be an expression of deeper concerns I have about living a spiritual life, and being open to the inner mysteries that abound. Other than that, drawing is the most relaxing activity I have ever known, and somehow, in the scheme of things, feels like it must be done. The universe beckons.” He currently resides with his wife and son at the edge of the Kelly Street Garden in the South Bronx.
