I am a complet artist teaching my art, have been teaching for the last 7 years. Before i did a lot of things as an artist, worked in decoration for national monuments, cinema and rich people; i worked as well as a restorer of old paintings and for art dealers, national monuments, like castle of Versailles, palace of justice, cathedrales and churches, i worked also as a portraitist.
I have been living here on the west coast for 4 years, i moved from paris for family reason and because i couldn't handle the big city, i lived there for 40 years. I have been travelling a lot bettween 17 and 27, one world tour and about 30 countries.
Now, that i am settled with my 17 years old son, i enjoy hosting people. Lots of travellers and volunteers are stopping by, for short and longer terms, from different websites.
I have a hippie life style and always up for something new. I am spontaneous and don't usually like a life all planed. My philosophy :«happiness is only real when shared».
Help around the house
Help with Computers/ Internet
People can learn a lot from me as i have many skills, a trippy philosophy and some kind of wisdom. I have been travelling the world for about 10 years and i did a lot of different jobs always related to art.
I need help to assist me in all my art projects, help me with social media as well, making videos to organise classes online and help me to promote myself. Also casually in the house with little cleaning. A normal day of help for you would be waking up arround 8:30, join me to my class, help me a bit to carry materials, i will teach you as one of my students old masters technics, you help me cooking for lunch, then you have free time the afternoon, in the evening, once in a while, you could pose for me for exemple for portraits, i will do mostly sketches and as well painting if i am inspired but painting takes me much longer time as i do hyperrealistic. When i have other kind of artistic works as wallpainting or restaurztion, your help will be welcome. You can also help me as well helping me to promote my art on internet if you have that skill. Otherwise you can help me a little with cleaning (at least for your own things). Don't expect to be helping like a regular job, it is more about exchange inspiring eachother and having fun. In fact, I'm looking forward creative, happy and friendly experience.
