I am a professional artist and author, living and working here in the beautiful Algarve in Portugal.
I have been working as a full-time artist for nine years, and my work is displayed in private homes across the world. I paint in acrylics and have a modern and vibrant style that can transform your living space or office. I am also available for private commissions.

'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.
