Birdsong Studios


36 4th Ave SE, High River



Birdsong Studio 3.0 is currently under construction. We will announce our reopening on our social media channels soon.

Russell Thomas works out of Birdsong Studio 3.0, located on 4th Avenue SE in High River, Alberta, Canada. Known for his use of colour in portraiture, Russell began his painting journey in
2014 at the age of 47. By the age of 50, he semi-retired from traditional employment to focus on art as a business and livelihood.

He loves using his painting passion to help charities and communities. In addition to donations of art, Russell has made dozens of live painting appearances throughout western Canada, raising tens of thousands of dollars for great causes. He is heavily involved in an international charity called Bracelets 4 Buildings, which builds homes for the poor in rural areas of southeast Asia. Russell also serves as President of the Okotoks Arts Council.

The gallery below is a small sampling of Russell’s bold, wild colour style. To view his chronological archive of paintings that date from 2014 to the present please click here. *Want to learn to paint like this?
