Perch here if you love birds!
Mandy Renton - Budgie and Parrot Artist
My artwork portrays pet birds, parrots and tropical birds in colour and detail.
STOP PRESS! The Budgerigardener SHOP is now set up for selling my original paintings. This is the only place you will find my original paintings online.
I create art for people who love and understand birds and wildlife, and most especially those who have birds as members of their family.
Join me on my artistic journey as I explore our relationships with birds; in captivity; in the wild and in popular culture. Works by artists such as Van Gogh, Picasso and Duchamp have been re-imagined with budgies, and more homages continue to emerge.
UK wildlife, garden birds and guinea pigs also emerge from my studio in Ipswich.
I am passionate about encouraging a greater admiration for the intelligence and charm of budgerigars and pet birds, alongside their larger feathered relations. Capturing character and essence is fundamental to my work.
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 psittacine and human friends at Tropical Birdland in Leicestershire, where the birds are a huge source of inspiration, and help me to market my artwork.
