WHO ARE WE?
‘The only independent art and photography platform in the world.’ ~ Rick Wallington, Founder.
The Pudding’s started in 2016 as an image sharing portal to enable people to connect to their friends & family across the United Kingdom. Our Founder had also been to visit a very Famous Gallery in London, and found it totally detached, pompous and disconnected!
His vision was to make Art & Photography available to everyone, regardless of age, gender, or talent.
On exiting the Gallery, he got talking to two caricaturists who ‘blew him away’ with their skills & ideas for creating a group for emerging artists & new talent. He jumped on the train and a Facebook group and twitter feed were created.
Kirsten’s website knowledge & understanding of design together with Rick’s Social Media strategy, seo & content writing , I wouldn’t go anywhere else, the price is value in itself !
JOIN our V.I.P. MEMBERSHIP
Our membership aims to give artists and photographers a way to showcase their work. We not only link their images from our website to their online selling space, but we also share their images and contact details across our Social Media platforms.

Rick Wallington has given me some fantastic tips and helpful strategies to improve my social media visibility for Happyconfidentkids. Knowledgeable and ethical, I highly recommend them. Then you add the ethos of the Pudding Family and this organisation is amazing. Promoting collaboration, mental health, inclusion and generally building each other up in a community, a one of a kind! I'm humbled to be a part of this movement and hope that our connection goes from strength to strength.
