Hi, I’m Jo Egerton, I am the founder of Birds of Paradise Arts.

After working with people of all ages in Greater Manchester for eighteen years I set up Birds of Paradise Arts in 2010. Offering a flexible arts pathway that nurtures creativity at the same time offering specialist art therapy services as needs reflect at community level at any given time.

Having worked across the statutory and voluntary sector using art materials for the purpose of Fun, Education and Art Therapy. In 2014 Birds of Paradise became a Community Interest Company. In 2018 after celebrating all that was achieved in the North West it was time to take to the sky and Birds of Paradise flew to a new home and nest in the South West of the UK in Cornwall 


Birds of Paradise Arts offers Art for Health, Education & Fun. Based in the South West of England in Cornwall. We work with individuals & groups of all ages. We partner with other organisations in the UK & Abroad. Our aim is to engage people creatively, to inspire and empower people through art making.

Our Belief

Everyone can use art materials! Birds of Paradise is committed to supporting individuals find their own artistic expression for the purpose of personal growth, skill or pleasure for fun, education or health.
