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.

Wonder if I should eat this

                  Oil painting  45.5 cm by 35.5cm [ 16" by 12" ] SOLD


  1. Great to see the ol' maggies get some air time! Very nice pic, especially love the shading on the gum leaves!

  2. I love how you've rendered, not only the birds, but the branches and leaves as well. So very realistic.

  3. Thank you both again, magpies are the funniest birds , especially the young ones, I love to watch them and enjoyed painting them
