Ritchie was born on the west coast of Scotland and studied painting and illustration in Glasgow before settling in Edinburgh where he is artist in residence at Just-Art gallery in Morningside. Ritchie established Ritchie Collins Gallery in 2010 in Leith. His work is influenced by the Scottish coast and wild countryside. Celtic art, myths and Scottish folklore are a constant source of inspiration. Vibrant colour simple form and a creative use of texture are woven together to give the original paintings their unique magical quality..
