Ricky McPherson

I was born and raised in Stratford and as far back as I can remember I have always had a passion for art. At the age of 16 I attended Barking and Dagenham College and stayed there for 4 years learning the science and techniques of decorative painting.


I have since gone on to work in many private and public buildings around London

such as the Royal Academy of Art, the V&A, Harrods, Kensington Palace, Hampton Court Palace and the Foreign Office to name a few. I have also completed commissions for many well-known designers, companies and clients.


When I'm not at work I'm normally in my studio practicing techniques and making mediums from my collection of old books, some going back as far as the 18th century.


A wise man once said "if you're looking forward to retirement you're in the wrong line of work”. I personally don't ever wish to retire.
