About Shaun McPherson

Shaun McPherson is a unique rare artist who without formal training has the ability to breath life into the steel he works with. Shaun`s passion for wildlife is his main inspiration for his work and his love for working with steel in the raw form has taken him on a journey that started by creating spiderwebs to protect garden ponds to now creating large life size sculptures for beautiful private gardens across the UK.

Shaun McPherson

Biography / CV of Shaun McPherson

Born in South Africa in 1982, Shaun McPherson`s life got off to a rocky start. A disruptive home life and learning difficulties left Shaun struggling at school and by the time he was 15 he had been excluded from 3 schools and was heading down a self destructive path. Taken into care by his retired grandparents at this time, Shaun`s life was not looking bright but he was then mentored by his grandfather who was an engineer and a mixed media artist. This is where the art seed was unconscious planted.
Shaun learned to weld at age 17 as a way of getting him out of the bad situation he was in but he had no idea he had any artistic flare.

At 19 Shaun immigrated to the UK to start a fresh life. Having no formal education Shaun struggled to find work as a welder and found himself working in bars and retail shops. Shaun then found his way back into the metalwork industry and sent himself to college to do a welding and fabrication diploma.

After 8 years of working in sheet metal and steel fabrication workshops Shaun`s life got dealt another curve ball. The 2008 recession left him with very little work and a bleak outlook of the future. With a small family he was determined he was not going to be beaten and started making small steel figures out of scrap steel as a way to challenge his boredom. This quickly grew as Shaun noticed a unique skill in breathing life and essence into the steel figures he was creating and a unique talent in designing practical garden sculptures.

In 2010 Shaun quit full time work to pursue his dream of creating a metal fabrication workshop and with the help of the Prince`s Trust in April 2011 Shaun set up Elite Pond Covers, an award winning enterprise specialising in artistically designed pond covers made to protect children and wildlife and also unique garden sculptures and wrought iron work. In 2013 Shaun was a runner up in the Prince`s Trust Business Enterprise Award and in March 2014 Shaun won the Prestigious Young Ambassador of the year award.

Shaun`s three dimensional commissions include dragonflies, frogs, koi and spiders and has recently installed his first large life size sculpture, a show jumping horse for a large private garden in Berkshire. His works also include various types of two dimensional wall sculptures

Working mostly on commissions Shaun is hoping to start creating his own works to exhibit.
