About Us


Hi, I’m Guy Trinquet

I started Two Talking Birds as a way of sharing my love of painting with others. Originally from Paris, I’ve been living in Melbourne since 2005.  Mostly self taught, I constantly experiment. I have also learnt under artists who are masters in their craft in France.

My intention for starting Two Talking Birds is to help “ordinary folks” (many who think they don’t have a creative bone in their body) and those who feel intimidated by the idea of picking up a paint brush to discover the joy of painting.

Painting transports me to a completely different realm.  Teaching others to do the same is a privilege.  It gives me immense satisfaction to be able to bring people together in a space where they can learn, laugh, experiment, relax and enjoy.

My Approach

I keep my class size small so that I can help and guide all the participants. I teach through demonstrations, in depth explanation and exercises in a friendly environment that is conducive to making new friends and just being yourself.

Many of my students have reported how much they have changed as a result of painting - I couldn’t be happier!

I hope I can help you on your journey.
