About

Welcome to the photo and art website of Beth Lily Redwood. My work seeks to awaken in the viewer a deep appreciation for and recognition of the sacred soul, beauty and individuality of animals. In so doing, my goal is to increase compassion and respect for animals, and to help end the suffering that exploitation by humans inflicts upon them. A vegan since 2005, I am a graphic artist, photographer, and writer. I am serving as a graphic designer for Dr. Melanie Joy's Beyond Carnism organization. My photos have been included in Melanie Joy's TEDx talk, "Vegan Health and Fitness" magazine, the Go Vegan Ireland campaign, the Tofurky website, and SAFE for the Animals. I have contributed graphic design for animal advocacy groups and individuals, including Will Tuttle, The Prayer Circle for Animals, Out to Pasture Sanctuary, Wildwood Farm Sanctuary, Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary, Animal Outreach of Kansas, Veganpalooza, The Interfaith Vegan Coalition, and my husband Daniel Redwood's animal rights album, "Songs for Animals, People and the Earth." I am also a certified World Peace Diet facilitator.

My photography and digital art is featured in The Animal Museum's exhibit, "Crazy Cat Ladies: A Celebration of Kitties and Their Champions," and the online exhibit, "Uncooped: Deconstructing the Domesticated Chicken." My artwork has been featured in the "Celebrating Animals Through Art" exhibit at the Lewis and Clark Animal Law Conference, "The Story of Chickens: A Revolution," at the Percolator Artspace, "The Cat's Meow" at The Artists' Gallery, plus several other galleries. My digital artwork, "The Mother of Compassion Blesses All Our Fellow Beings: May They Be Happy and Free From Suffering," was featured on the cover of the United Poultry Concerns' Poultry Press magazine, and won first place in the Peace.TV "Inspirational Photo, Art and Words Challenge." My photo series, "Baby Blue Jay Blackberry Saga," was featured as a "flock exclusive" on the Our Hen House website, a Webby Honoree.

My animal advocacy was profiled in an interview with Jasmin Singer for Our Hen House, "Creating Game-Changing Art for Animals: Our Hen House Talks to Beth Lily Redwood" (ourhenhouse.org). My essay, "Finding My Good Heart", was published in The Missing Peace: The Hidden Power of Our Kinship with Animals. My writing is also included in Turning Points in Compassion: Personal Journeys of Animal Advocates and Letters to a New Vegan: Words to Inform, Inspire, and Support a Vegan Lifestyle.

Thank you for these great gifts to the world. The kindness and open hearts we see in the animals is the visual promise of the joys of nonexploitative relationships with non humans.

Antoine de Saint-Expery said, " What is essential is invisible to the eye." And yet the essential quality of each of these beings has been captured so beautifully and made visible in these photographs. Both spirit and personality exude from each animal in a form of visual communication. How could any of them ever be reduced to commodities again once their essential nature has been seen with such clarity?. Thank you for your wonderful work Beth.
