I am an artist/ fashion photographer and photography instructor from Los Angeles.I am now living in between LA and a beautiful country side of Czech Republic, in the rolling hills of south Moravia, know for it's vineyards , castles and beautiful nature. popular for hiking, biking, fishing, and sight seeing of the old historic mid evil castles.
I decided to buy this old farm house and build a art studio and an oasis for all of those people that wish to escape a big city like Los Angeles and have place to retreat, relax and recharge.
As you can tell from the pictures, falling in love with a place like this is almost instantaneous. The farmhouse consist of a large garden, two wells, a barn, 2 wine cellars, and several rooms that are not fixed or even occupied yet. So far I was able to do most of the work and fix 3 rooms plus all the flooring of the barn, to make it a nice habitable space...but I am far from finished
That's why I am reaching out to like minded people. Anyone that wishes to get away for a while and live out in the nature, where you can actually see millions of stars at night and sleep like a baby without any city noise and all the distractions we face every seconds of our lives, living in a place like LA, NY or any other big cities
My dream is to revive this 100 year old farm house and turn it in to a playground for all artists and nature lovers that wish to come and stay here whenever they like.
Perhaps offering free art and photography classes for those of you that are interested in coming out here, would be a bonus, as I love teaching and sharing 30+ years of my life with others.
