Budgie paintings and parrot art

Budgie Paintings and Parrot Art by Mandy Renton

Paintings of budgies, parrots and pet birds, for those who love their feathered friends.

I create budgie and parrot art for people who love and understand birds and wildlife,  and especially for anyone who considers a bird to be a member of the family.  I hope to provide something special to pet bird owners who cannot always find their favourite birds portrayed in art, whether as an original painting, a greeting card, print or gift.  My subjects cover an expanding range of our most beloved pet birds - and their wild relatives - capturing them on canvas in a realistic but painterly fashion.

I am passionate about encouraging a greater admiration for the intelligence and charm of budgies and all pet birds, alongside larger parrots, wild and tame. Capturing character and essence is fundamental to my work.

My art, rather like my own budgie, can be a little cheeky! Works by artists such as Van Gogh, Picasso and Duchamp have been re-imagined as famous budgie paintings.

UK wildlife, garden birds and guinea pigs also emerge from my studio in Ipswich, Suffolk.

Perch here a while and peruse my shop and portfolio. I hope you'll find a new addition to your 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!)
