About Our Auction

We are packing up Birdsong Studio and heading down the highway to our new home in Okotoks in late June. This will be our final online auction while based in Fort McMurray. We have went above and beyond to offer a wide selection of originals, canvas prints, EPs and limited edition prints. Several EPs of a Chris Phillips portrait are being sold to raise money for Kidsport Wood Buffalo. We also have "Passion of Christ" which is raising money for the building fund at McMurray Gospel Assembly Church.

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.
