I live and work in the city of Bristol, UK, where the landscape and passing hot air balloons are a frequent inspiration.
Over the years I have travelled widely, the countries I visit and the people I meet provide me with rich material for my paintings and photography. I am also currently working on a book highlighting my life and travels as an artist.
Original Paintings, Prints and Cards of my work can be found around the world as well as in Bristol Galleries and Museums. I hold a weekly pastel painting group in my studio/gallery and welcome commissions.
In Olhao, ‘Art in the Algarve’ offers a truly wonderful opportunity to visit a beautiful area, full of painting opportunities, with artists of all abilities, and beginners, whilst enjoying a fabulous climate and superb accommodation.
I welcome commissions and more of my work can be seen on my website. www.alvisfineart.co.uk
