    Help

    Our place is a river Iland, so there is always a little bit of gardening needed. And I am preparing a big contemporary art show. Work could vary from designing sculptures on the computer (knowing how to use illustrator would be a great help) to building sculptures in fiberglass and résine (no technic needed, I will teach you) Apart from Illustrator, no experience needed but good will and good health 4.5 hours a day.
