I am delighted to be able to inform you that for the whole of 2015 I will again be donating 10% of my profits from my Pet Portrait paintings to the wonderful SOS Algarve Animals Charity here on the Algarve.
SOS Algarve Animals are a registered charity that help abandoned animals in the Algarve. Portugal is believed to be one of the worst countries in Europe for animal neglect and abandonment; on average SOS Algarve Animals re-homes between 300 and 400 dogs, cats, puppies and kittens every year. They are also involved in sterilizing approximately 600 dogs and cats every year.

As an acrylic painter based here on the Algarve, as well as creating modern acrylic paintings, I also complete Pet Portraits as commissions. For the last two years I have sponsored the ‘Best in Show’ at the Algarve Dog Show, and wanted to do more for a worthwhile animal charity. I therefore decided to donate 10% of my profits for each Pet Portrait painting to the SOS Algarve Animals charity during 2014, and found this to be such a worthwhile charity that I intend to continue my support in the same way for 2015.
My Pet Portrait paintings
I specialise in creating an original and unique portrait painting of a pet. I enjoy creating unique, hand-painted portraits and I aim to capture both a realistic likeness and also something of the personality of the pet, working from the owner’s own photographs.
