About

Welcome to the Brushes & Booze art studio! My name is Shannon MacDonald and I’m the creative mind behind the canvas here. 

Art has been firmly etched in my identity since I could pick up a pencil. Now, I’m proud to say that I’m a working artist specialising in realistic portraits and landscapes, with a portfolio full of those styles and more.

Brushes & Booze is my way of sharing my love for painting with the Greater Sydney community and helping them create their own masterpiece…with the help of a little bit of booze.

My philosophy is that you don’t need a shred of artistic talent to create something beautiful. All it takes is a paintbrush, some paint and a canvas to make the magic happen. 

A Brushes & Booze class isn’t just about the finished product. It’s about learning the basic steps that go into a painting, unleashing your creativity and having a jolly good time with friends with a paintbrush in one hand and a drink in the other.
