Award of Excellence – The Holmes Prize for Excellence in Realistic Australian Bird Art 2022.
This painting was created to raise awareness of an iconic Australian cockatoo.
Gang-gang cockatoos are one of my favorite Australian birds, They are the animal emblem of the Australian Capital Territory and one of the more distinctive and charismatic members of Australia’s avifauna. This gorgeous female epitomises their sheer beauty.
I feel it is important to recognise the splendour of our Australian Birdlife and use my artworks to promote birdlife conservation. With each painting created I strive to capture the character and majesty of every subject.
Sadly these beautiful birds have recently been uplisted to the endangered species list.
Thank you to my friend and fabulous birdlife photographer Perry Cho for graciously providing the reference photo used and inspiration for this painting.
