About Our Auction

This auction is a little different in that we are offering the lowest BUY NOW prices ever for our gallery canvas prints. Choosing the BUY NOW option gets you free shipping on the item to anywhere in Canada (or a $25 shipping credit anywhere else) and a free upgrade to an EP. What's an EP? It is what we call an Embellished Print, where hand embellishments are added along with an original signature.

Birdsong Studio in Okotoks is a community creative space where we invite other artists of all skill ranges to paint with us. We also offer more structured workshops and customized painting experiences. Additionally, we do what we can to help a broad range of charities and community causes. Thanks to many of you who purchased pieces in our 20 Day Painting Challenge auction, a home was built and gifted to a very poor family in rural Cambodia earlier this summer. Your support of this auction enables us to give back throughout the year.

GST (and shipping, if applicable) 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.
