Explore with Heart - The Story Behind Blue Eggs and Tea

Blue Eggs and Tea started in 2013 with the aim of providing something a little different to the art and illustration market: a brand with social and environmental conscience.

Concerned with how much art work is out of reach for most people, and worried about the vanity and disposable nature of retail and ‘trend’ I decided to take a different path; affordable art with a clear message: How We Live Is What Makes Us Real. This message continues to guide me as I grow my little bird-brand from here in the middle of the UK. Charitable giving is a core part of Blue Eggs and Tea, as is a focus on soulful production and the customer relationship. When you buy Blue Eggs and Tea you’re part of the Family, and I want you to feel welcome.

My aim is to shake up this little corner of the market and say that art can be affordable, it can be ethical throughout the supply chain, and it can deliver a powerful message that goes beyond the ‘artist’.

Everything is made and sent out by me directly, so you can trust the history and you can trust the source. I’m growing day by day, and this involves learning new lessons and building in new practices – I am all about honesty and authenticity, so to find out more just contact me for a chat or check out my website This will give you more info on what I am doing now whether it's sourcing new packaging, or working on new designs that promote my core beliefs that I wish to pass on.

Thank you for visiting my shop. My name is Ruth and I'm a part-time artist and illustrator. I believe in changing the world for the better a little bit each day, and Blue Eggs and Tea carries a strong personal, ethical and soulful message that reflects my passion for people and the world around me. I want to see retail done differently and as a result all my products have known, ethical provenance and everything is sold directly from me so that I can ensure the highest possible standards of business.
