Surfdog & Artbird began by painting characters and having them published by Phil Taylor Studios Greeting Cards, and everything produced since has revolved around art. Trained in Art and Design at the Randwick College TAFE in Sydney and graduating with a Graphic Art and Design Diploma, career adventures began in art and design studios and many advertising agencies as art and creative directors. These experiences led to painting full time many years ago, as the duo have separate solo practices outside of Surfdog & Artbird.
“Surfdog & Artbird” are newcomers on the art prizes circuit. As solo artists their selections include The Sulman Prize at the AGNSW, The Fleurieu Art Prize, and The ANL and Manning Art Prizes amongst others. Solo representation and exhibitions has included Art Galleries Schubert and David Hart Galleries in Queensland, The Jackman Gallery in Melbourne, Rushcutters Bay Gallery in Sydney and overseas exhibitions in Hong Kong and China.
Their love of travel, sun, surf and their many furred and feathered friends, has taken them on many adventures. They are sponsors of the NSW Cancer Council Posh Auction to which they donate a painting to be auctioned each year, and support and sponsor the RSPCA in Australia for animal welfare and the Parrot Rescue Centre.
Surfdog & Artbird are represented by Nissarana Galleries at Noosa QLD and Mornington VIC, and are now looking to add to representation, exhibitions and selected finalist art prize exhibitions.
