  • Description


    I’m a Cork based artist.
    I live in the countryside in an old farmhouse near the Beautiful Lee Valley.

    Looking for someone who will help keep the garden maintained & do a few projects around the house.

    I love cooking but am happy for you to show me some recipes.

    I have a sauna in the garden & there is complete privacy with no neighbours.

    Would like a person who is very open minded and comfortable in himself.

    You will get to share the space with me, an artist. Food will be included but you are free to eat how you wish.

    I’m happy to teach you how to be in the present moment and live in the richness of this existence. I practice meditation & mindfulness & am happy to share this learning with you.

    Who knows - maybe you can also sit for a painting?!

    I’m happy to drive you to the city once or twice a week. There are some beautiful walks in the area & access to the river should you wish to go wild swimming.

    I’m easy going and there are no specific rules about how to be here. In the summer months I sometimes don’t wear clothes 😊
