  • Description


    We established a music and arts centre in Telemark , in Norway in 2015/16. we run concerts, exhibitions and events. The place is a farm with developed buildings. Our private home merged with our professions, operasinger and painter in the figurative tradition. We are both working internationally with established careers. The house consists of private housing, art studio, music studio, exhibition room and rooms for tuition. And we have a smaller concerthall with a shop for unique products.
    We have two children , boys of 4 and 7. No smokers inside. We dont have pets.
    We are experiencing a strong growing interest in our concerts and events and The buildings need work on the finishing , a carpenter and a mason are the crafts that we look for, also we could use an experienced Linseed Oil painter. .
