About Our Auction

During this lockdown period, we have enjoyed many hours of creating in the studio. It is time to clear some space for the productive summer months to come.

One of the items in this auction is a traditional painting of a Cambodian floating village by an artist named Kong done earlier this year in his studio near the famous Angkor Wat world heritage site. The oil painting has been professionally stretched and framed. Proceeds from the sale of this piece with support the Covid Relief effort of Bracelets For Building.

We are also donating 10% of net sale proceeds to a charity in Fort McMurray supporting the recovery efforts from the recent floods.

Of course, every sale supports Birdsong Studio and our ability to support a broad range of charities and community initiatives.

About Birdsong Studios

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 Studios. 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. You follow her Instagram account @heatherthomasart.

Birdsong Studio is now located in High River, Alberta.
