More details about your skills
I am a children’s illustrator based in Edinburgh
Currently working on writing and illustrating my own children’s book and songs for a children’s country /bluegrass music album.
I host children’s workshops/ worked in a school with children’s with additional support needs. I have a valid PVG. (Equivalent of the DBS in England).
I can cook a bit, teach anything artsy, French if needed. But I have been living in Scotland for the past 5 years so I am not looking for a language exchange. At least not for English. But happy to learn other languages of course!
I can help with homework, plan creative plays. I have worked as an aupair 4 years ago with two different family in Canada (Qc and BC). I volunteered teaching drama to children back from when I was living in France.
I don’t have much experience with planting but I am keen to do outdoorsy things and would love to help with gardening and learning about species and eco friendly solutions. I have recently been working in collaboration with Edinburgh science festival illustrating a piece for the event about greening and improving urban areas in Edinburgh. I have learned a bit about plants and tree species that are improving air quality. And will be happy to be learning even more...
If you need help building up a camper van I would be really happy to contribute to that too! As I’d love to do it for myself one day.
More details about my language interests
I would be happy to teach a bit of French to children if needed.
What else ...
I can canoe and bike and I am a keen hiker. I am genuinely happy and a curious person in general, I like to explore a bit! But I do enjoy quieter nights playing games and chatting. I am also more than happy to cook together and share a good meal. Be aware that I would respect your own space and be respectful of the accommodation.
I’d love to play music together. I have recently started to learn the ukulele and would be happy to contribute to anything related to music. If you play the spoons I am genuinely interested to learn ahahah I am also really curious about the frog instrument!
I am currently wanting to open my own children’s art studio. Any tips are welcome :)
Because I have been living in beautiful Scotland for a while now I am keen to explore a bit more of England and planning to move by the coast down south late summer/September.
Depending on the location, if it is a bit far I would really appreciate a contribution to the train tickets.
Thank you for your understanding.
Looking forward to meeting you and your lovely family :)
