  • Description


    I am a 50 years old art teacher, have been doing that for the last 5 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. Now i am training to become a tattoo artist.
    I have been living here on the west coast for 3 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 16 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».
    I live in a nice 70m2 apartment few minutes away from the beach in a city of 18000 people. Lot of retired people though but it is beautiful and peaceful.

    I need help to assist me in all my art projects and also in the house with little cleaning. A normal day of work 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 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, restauration or tattoo, your help will be welcome. Otherwise you can help me a little with cleaning at least for your own things.
