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.

This is a oil painting of the Australian Kookaburra.
It is 30 by 40cm


  1. Dheer, Thank you so much for commenting, it is very kind of you and much appreciated

  2. Hi Julie,

    When I see a painting with this bird, it always brings a good memory to me.
    A Kookaburra bird was one of the first works that I did in pastel and one of my first since I started painting.
    Of course that it didn't come out as good as these :-)
    Other birds that I find quite funny are those parrots (I guess they're called parrots) from New Zealand that are really curious and nosy.

    Kind regards,


  3. Jose' Thank you for your time and your comment, kookaburras are one of my favourite birds, I would really love to see some of your paintings, I bet they are gorgeous, thanks again
