Bird Art by Mandy Renton.

Paintings of budgies, parrots and pet birds. Bird and animal art.

I create budgie paintings and parrot art for people who love and understand birds,  and especially for anyone for whom birds are a member of the family.  I hope to provide something special to budgie owners and parrot parents who cannot always find their pet birds portrayed in art as they see them. Capturing character and essence is fundamental to my work.

Budgies are the world's most popular pet birds - and mine too! I am passionate about promoting an admiration for their charm and intelligence. My art is inspired by a passion for all pet birds and parrots,  and a care and concern for the challenges facing wild birds and birds in captivity.

UK birds and wildlife also emerge from my Suffolk studio. Guinea pigs are a new favourite subject and I have no shortage of models as my mum has a passion for piggies.

Perch a while and get to know my flock!

My first parrot memory is of a childhood visit to Birdland in Gloucestershire where I was fascinated by the big smiley beak and vibrant blues and purples of a friendly hyacinth macaw.

Many years later I am delighted to have made parrot and human friends at Tropical Birdland in Leicestershire, where the birds are a huge source of inspiration (and the cockatoos give shout outs for my art!)
