This blog is a joint effort by Dave and Alyson – so here’s a little bit about us:
Alyson – “Working full-time in education and the public sector in the UK left me with little time for my real love of painting. I am now able to work full-time as an artist from my home studio on the Algarve, creating modern acrylic paintings. I am also available for commissions, and complete Pet Portraits on request. I am also a writer having published three books under my ‘Algarve Dream’ series, and three books and a box set in my ‘Travel Stories Series’.”
You can find out more about Alyson’s work on her website www.alysonsheldrake.com
Dave – “Retiring from the Police has allowed me to spend more time with my camera, taking photographs that inspire and challenge me. I love finding myself on a beach just before sunset, capturing the beauty of the stunning Algarve coastline. I am also available for commissioned work, including photographing Property for Rent or Sale; Events, Family Celebrations and Portraits.”
