Perth Western Australia
About me

My name is Brett McPherson and I’m a retired graphic designer who loves to paint. I worked in the advertising industry, in some of Perth’s largest agencies for over 35 years as a senior art director, then ran my own business. The commercial art world has changed so much over the years with the introduction of computers and the social network of communication. But my passion for the visual arts has never changed.

These days I’ve combined my love of holiday destinations and painting. I travel extensively throughout the state of Western Australia, always taking a sketchbook wherever I go. There is nothing more peaceful than sketching in deserted areas where you are at one with nature.

One of my favourite destinations is Rottnest where I’ve holidayed for many years since I was a boy. I’ve always loved the stunning beauty of its coast and the intriguing history of it’s past. The contrasting colours and the sculptural ruggedness of its coast offers many challenges. While many artists have attempted Rottnest I try to capture a less commercial approach.
