Zeena Amer is an artist from Bagdad, Iraq who now resides in New Mexico. She started drawing when she was three years old and graduated from the Art College University of Bagdad.  Each piece is hand painted with colors and designs inspired by the diversity and color of Iraq.  Her inspiration comes from the small city she grew up in, which was filled with all kinds of date trees, the sounds of roosters crowing in the morning, the Hasma hand and the eye to protect you from envy.  In January 2019, with encouragement from family and friends, she opened Xena Arts.
