About Our Auction
Our Christmas auction features works by three Birdsong Studio artists: Russell, Heather and Ben Thomas. There are a few colourful original works, several limited edition treasures, and some gallery canvas prints that are sure to add some excitement to Christmas morning. Sales enable us to continue to provide support to charities and causes throughout the year, however, there are several pieces that are supporting specific charities like Some Other Solutions (Anthony Bourdain) and Bracelets For Buildings (My Talkative Raven Friend). There is also a stunning limited edition gallery canvas print featuring an incredible drawing of an old man by our 15 year old son Ben. It is a fundraiser for a school trip that he is taking to the Scandinavian capitals in 2019.
Everyone who gets the high bid on items will receive an email invoice on the morning of December 16th with payment options. We accept EMT, credit card, tap debit, cheque, PayPal or cash. GST will be added to the final sale price.
About Birdsong Studio and Healing Centre
Russell Thomas began creating wild colour portraits in Birdsong Studio (Fort McMurray) in 2014. His late career dive into painting has combined his passion for portraiture with his interest in giving back. Live paintings, painting donations and the sale of prints have helped multiple charities. In recent years, families in rural Cambodia moved into new homes, funded by the sale of paintings and prints through a charity called Bracelets For Buildings.
In addition to doing commissions for clients from across Canada and the U.S., Russell enjoys following his creative instincts and producing work that is made available through his Russell Thomas Art Facebook page and his Instagram account (@russellthomasart).
Heather Thomas is co-owner of Birdsong Studio and Healing Centre. She has been exploring abstract art over the past few years and has found a unique "voice" using a broad range of materials and methods. She has become an artist in her own right and works in the studio alongside Russell almost every day.
