My Art

I am an acrylic painter and I produce modern paintings which have been described as “fun and colourful, with a strong design element”

My paintings are vibrant, eye-catching and original. My work incorporates realistically painted images combined with bright and strong abstract backgrounds, and capture the colours and sights of the Algarve in a modern way.

I also paint bright and modern flowers which almost seem to jump off the wall!
