Redmore was born and died in Hull. He lived and painted all his life in the north-east and had his studio in Regent Street, Hull. The quality of his work is good, with a pleasing palette tending to grey. The serenity, stillness, sense of colour and above all the high standard of draughtsmanship account for the popularity of his paintings.
He only exhibited once at the Royal Academy, in 1868, but may have put up pictures in other years.
