Welcome to my blog

I have loved painting and art from a very early age , but only taken my art seriously in the last two and half years. I paint in oils and my passion is Australian birds, I spend a lot of time watching birds and their antics and try to put it on canvas. I also paint portraits , and the odd landscape. I studied art for a time in Tony Moffits online art school and improved tremendously as a artist. I paint every day , and try to improve with every painting I do. I only use good quality canvas and oil paints. All paintings on this site are for sale, please feel free to contact me on southern_skies@hotmail.com
Thank you so much for dropping by.

  1. Love this Julie, especially the man in the foreground. Akubra/cowboy hats are soooooo hard to draw/paint, I can't manage them at all, so jealous! lol

  2. Jade, you are so sweet, the people in this painting are from around our area, had fun painting this, and I am absolutely sure you could paint Akubra hats !
