14-year-old Karishma holds a paint brush in her trunk and gives a selection of wooden elephants a splash of colour.
Metro reports that keepers at the zoo hope that her paintings will help to "raise vital funds for the zoo's worldwide elephant conservation and research projects".
Keeper Elizabeth Becker said: "Karishma really enjoys painting, and she's very talented at it.
"It demonstrates just how dexterous elephants' trunks really are and we think the end results are pretty amazing, if a little abstract."
A collection of pieces, which represent the nine elephants at the zoo, have been decorated by students at the Central Bedfordshire College.
On September 22 and 23 there will be an Elephant Appreciation Weekend, where the paintings will be displayed.
