Jen Bergren   (
Where do you live? What made you want to contribute to help raise funds for an animal shelter in Nova Scotia?
I live in San Diego. Paws for Charity not only raises money to directly benefit an animal shelter, but it also raises awareness in Canada, the U.S., and beyond for pet rescues and shelters in general, because of the publicity created by Sara and all the caring artists who contributed to it. I am proud to be a part of any project that raises people's awareness about pets in need and gets them thinking about adopting instead of buying pets, or thinking about fostering and other ways they can help.

Do you have a certain "style" in mind when you create your images?
My style is happy and colorful, often taking advantage of all the beautiful and varied locations that San Diego has to offer (beaches, parks, mountains, deserts, downtown urban...). I want people, especially the pet parents, to smile when they see their favorite images!

Tell us about a current project you are working on?
Last year I completed a creative project featuring dogs near San Diego neighborhood signs (including another installment this year), so the next personal project I am working on features San Diego area stairs and dogs. I have noticed an interesting variety of outdoor staircases around the area, and I think the hard geometric lines of stairs contrast nicely with furry round dog shapes, something similar that I discovered I liked last year when working on a San Diego Bridges (with dogs) project.

Thanks's great to have you involved again in this year's project!

All proceeds from the sale of these books are donated to Sheltering Helpless Animals in Distress (, an animal Shelter in Nova Scotia.
