  • Description


    I’m an artist painting large paintings at my studio apartment. I have 4 kids living here part time. I love baking, cooking and making my own wine, jam and other things 😊 Also very into recycling and upcycling to create a more sustainable living. Just recently moved into my new house and the projects are more into gardening and renovation.
    In my Workaway insta you can find some more pictures and comments from other Workaway that stayed with me: ask me for the link

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I will show you the area and let you taste local food that I make myself. I can teach you about small business opportunities in Sweden and how to make smart startups from nothing. I’m very much into circular economy and recycling and can share some nice input in that business. You can learn to make my sour dough bread, we bake more than 400 per year in this house 😍 Also let you meet other nice people here and my family of course. I hope to hear from you about your culture and experiences.

    UPDATE from the 1st of May:
    I bought a new house and will start to restore it, both inside, outside and the garden during the summer. New to this place is that I also have a small sauna house in the garden. :) If you have experience from any type of renovation it's nice, but not mandatory. Pictures of the house are uploaded now.
