Hello!

Welcome to my portfolio. I'm Karen Wride and I'm an artist based in the Algarve, Portugal.

I specialize in oil paintings on canvas and am able to create stunning and stylish pieces of art from realistic portraits of animals and people, to thought-provoking landscapes and abstracts.

Please take a look at just some of my latest projects. Hover over the images to see them in full colour.

I also teach oil painting and drawing from my studio First Class Art in Guia on The Algarve, Portugal.
