William Colin Brick (Colin) 26.02.1930 – 22.11.2018

Colin spent his childhood in Stamford and attended its euphoniously named famous school before moving to the Nottingham College of Art from where he was awarded the National Diploma in Design and Painting and went on to form the Midland Group of Artists where he often exhibited his works.

Following his graduation in 1955 Colin went on to teach Art in a number of schools and colleges in the Midlands, most latterly at Bramcote Hills Technical Grammar School from where he happily retired to Norfolk in 1990 and spent many a sunny day sketching and painting beautiful countryside landscapes.

During his early years of retirement Colin and his wife Peggy also toured around Europe in their VW Camper Van packed full of all his artist materials. It was during this time that Colin first visited Ferragudo and was instantly captured with its beauty leading him to produce the following series of 5 paintings from 1990 until 1995.

'Living the Dream - in the Algarve, Portugal.'

Could you leave everything behind and start a new life in the sun?

Have you ever been on holiday abroad and wondered what it would be like to live there?

Alyson and Dave Sheldrake did. They fell in love with a little fishing village in the Algarve, Portugal, and were determined to realise their dream of living abroad. They bought a house there, ended their jobs, packed up everything they owned and moved to the Algarve to start a new life.

Follow them as they battle with Portuguese bureaucracy, set up their own businesses, adopt a rescue dog and learn to adapt to a slower pace of life. Laugh with them as Alyson propositions a builder, they try to master the Portuguese language, and successfully navigate the 'expat' world.

Part guidebook, mostly memoir; this is a refreshingly honest and often hilarious account of life abroad.


Available now to purchase. 

‘Living the Dream’ is available now to purchase on Amazon worldwide. For more information, visit my website www.alysonsheldrake.com or contact me.


Free Monthly Newsletter.

I also send out a free monthly newsletter, full of art, photography, books, and news about the Algarve. You can sign up via this link: www.alysonsheldrake.com/news


Thank you for taking the time to look around my stand, and I hope you enjoy the virtual BLiP 2020 exhibition.

My name is Kateryna and I am an artist working here in the Algarve. You may have seen me at the previous BLiP expos and I am back again with a wider range of services from original paintings to hand-painted murals.

Picture2 katerynailchukart


My passion is Portuguese Urban Landscape scenes. I paint my favorite places in oils and acrylics on canvas in Aesthetic Realism. I am proud that my original paintings are considered to be collectible pieces and are hosted by the local leading contemporary galleries.

Over the years, I have accepted a variety of commissions. This is a true collaboration between the artist and a client. Any home or business place can get a unique design with a hand-painted wall mural. A portrait commission is a great way to perpetuate a moment of life. Last but not the least, I offer a service of a museum quality reproduction of a painting for galleries and private collectors.
