Redbird is not for profit. This platform is written by artists and run by artists and seeks to promote the work of talented creative people throughout the UK and beyond.

Redbird features conversations and exhibitions produced by both emerging and established talent.  We are artists talking to other artists, curators, writers, musicians and makers, tackling the big philosophical questions and some of the nonsensical ones too.

Redbird has these principles at its core:

1. Supportive not Exploitative
It is free to feature your work on Redbird.  We are decidedly: not for profit.

2. Talent is What Counts
Redbird is interested in artists at all stages of their careers not just those who could be called emerging.

3. Artists and Creatives
Creative work can be found in many different industries, everything from music to robotics, so Redbird is open to new ideas, not just traditional art forms.

4. Meet the Makers
People who make things are interesting, so if we feature your work on Redbird we genuinely want to hear what you think about the world.

5.  Art is What We Do
Writers for Redbird are artists themselves and so it’s an opportunity to talk about your work with your peers, as opposed to an art critic or reviewer. 

If you want to get involved, if you’re a comic book artist, a fine artist, abstract artist, craftsman, curator or maker, established or starting out, if you’re keen to talk about your work, get in touch!


Its a tough world to be an artist in, but at least we can face the horror together!

Eileen Budd:

I am a painter and illustrator and my preferred mediums are acrylics and ink, although I'm getting the hang of digital painting. 

A large part of my creative life is spent working in the museums sector, having worked for National Museums Scotland, Edinburgh and now, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.  As an artist I find working in museums, both challenging and inspirational.  History is fascinating, if you’re looking to the future you have to understand the past.

Isobel Jepson:

I am a freelance photographer and graphic designer.  My role at Redbird is quite simply, to offer advice and assist with the photography.  I enjoy the research element too as I am also incurably curious, which was my whole reason for taking up photography in the first place!

Big Red:

Big Red is an all encompassing name for a few different artists who write for Redbird, but who wish to remain anonymous.
