Who are we?
We are a private family of two; father and son, ages 48 and 82. The home has 5 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms conveniently located:
a ferry ride away to San Francisco,
a bike ride away from Wine country,
a day trip to Yosemite.
I, the younger, consult in technology and run an arts LLC; an emerging artist with Bay Area connections. Poppa is a retiring lawyer/public defender. We are both in excellent physical health; he walks 3 miles daily and travels frequently. In fact, this year alone he has gone to Russia, China, Europe and the North American National Parks. About 15 minutes away lives my mother, Julia, and her primary care taker, my brother Jay.
What we need and you will learn/do
Three nights a week assist me with companionship for Julia. She comes to the Art House so Jay gets respite. We can listen to music, draw, watch a movie, dance. Julia is a glowing wonderful ball of joy and very inspiring. You will cry with laughter and joy... I promise.
Learn how to run an artist studio, managing the creation of art from inspiration, logistics, execution, curation, photography, and social media. Help maintain and improve a physical collection of a thousand drawings. The system is digitized and searchable through an SQL database. (techies welcome or I will teach you)
Nice to have....
Cook and share some meals. Talk about culture, travel, art, creativity, technology, AI, the future, gardening, life...... Collaborate with me on drawings.
I'd like to mentor an artist in this role. 'Caretaking and Creativity', I can officially offer the residency and project guidance for your CV. This is an awarded residency and something to be proud of. DM for detailed pdf about the residency details.
I collaborate with a contemporary dance company as a visual artist. I work regularly with dancers and models. I show my work at festivals and salons regularly, frequenting the San Francisco arts scene. In 2020 there are plans to tour Europe. I can introduce you. I host life drawing and guest artists who come for mentorship; my work attracts painters, photographers and filmmakers whom I gladly host.
I look forward to hearing from you. Tell me your hopes expectations and fears! We can do anything here.
