About Blake
Blake Twigden

Blake Twigden was born in Auckland, New Zaland in 1945. From the age of seven he has reflected his love for nature through paintings

His first one man showing was in Sydney, Australia in 1971, the theme being conservation and anti-pollution. Ensuing exhibitions developed a more positive imagery with Birds of Bradise and Hummingbirds etc, educating the viewer to appreciate and care for our wildlife.

He travelled extensively all over the world concentrating on painting the world's most beautiful birds, fishes and plants.

After 22 years based in Sydney, Twigden has returned to Auckland where he has enjoyed rediscovering his homeland and his natural heritage through his own Bird Garden
