About Guy


Hi, I’m Guy Trinquet.

I started Two Talking Birds as a way of sharing my love of painting to others, especially those who want to explore the painting but feel intimidated by the idea of picking up a paint brush.

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.

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 work can be found in private collections in Australia, France and the US.

My Approach

I keep my class size small enough to be able to 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!
