  • Description

    My background is in fine art, and my working experience in art therapy, mental health and teaching at post-graduate level in the UK, Spain and South America. I'm currently living in Italy but I want to spend some time in France to improve my French. I speak, English (native speaker), Spanish and some French and Italian. I am also a qualified English teacher-CELTA and recently spent two months teaching Italian school children. My interests are in the arts, ethnography, other cultures and people. I'm motivated by a desire to learn and experience and would be interested in working outside in an archaeological dig, or in a museum, art gallery, or community project. I'm not much of a 'domestic goddess' but I can cook simple meals and quite enjoy cleaning. I write and have published in the area of ethnography, Italian migration in South America and am currently editing a book on the wellbeing of children and young people. Overall, I am pretty easygoing and flexible. I enjoy meeting people but am also quite happy to spend time alone, reading or writing. Oh! and I have dual nationality Ireland/UK so hold an EU passport. I am fully vaccinated.

    I am very interested in history, art, music and dance. I don't know many board games but I enjoy playing them in a group. I read a lot and have experience as a writer and editor. One of my favourite things is exploring, travelling and learning about the customs, ways of life and culture in different places.
