Acrylic paintings inspired by animals and wildlife. Custom paintings of your beloved pets are also available.

I am available to teach workshops at studios or paint commissions.

My name is Ainsley McPherson, my painting journey began over 20 years ago when I took up Folk Art. I was keen to further my knowledge and participated in as many workshops as possible on painting to further my knowledge and skills base.

A few friends asked me to teach them and it grew from there, running workshops and classes at home and other studios as well as conventions in Vic and Qld.

You may be wondering how I started painting animals?  Well, it was my brothers girlfriend who originally asked if I could I paint his dog for a present.  I said I would try, not sure how I was going to paint his beautiful German Shepherd.  Well it turned out well and that took me down the path of painting people’s pets.

I also love doing wild animals as I feel before long most will be extinct, when I paint I am want to capture their physical attributes but also their personalities.

I have exhibited at shows across Victoria & Queensland from the Melbourne Royal Show, Emerald, Lilydale, Fraser Coast, Kyneton, Kangaroo Flat, Bendigo & Dandenong shows.  And I’ve been fortunate to both sell at these shows and have won numerous prizes.

I have painted a commission for The Yarra Valley Conference centre & have taught at the Victorian & Queensland conventions.

I am available to teach workshops at studios or paint commissions.
