About Our Auction

For the first time ever, we are doing an auction with exclusively original works. While the majority of the paintings are by Russell Thomas, several have been created by Heather Thomas. There are also a number of collaborative paintings.

Several original works in the "Prayers for Australia" series will be on the auction block, with 25% of the sale proceeds being donated to charities doing animal rescue and care work in the wake of the devastating fires down under.

We will also have several works benefitting local arts organizations in the Foothills.

GST will be added to the final sale price.

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.
