Looking to Sit

Wanted in Massachusetts 02111 United States of America

Listing #137023

Looking for a new area to explore.

I have stayed at a few Air BnB's and received very positive reviews. I am neat and organized and respectful of a host's rules and requests. My teaching career has allowed me to survive financially, but it certainly hasn't made me wealthy. So I am looking for something free or very affordable and am willing to take care of a residence and any pets in exchange for lodging. I am quiet and responsible.

I was born and raised in Rochester, Minnesota where my father was a surgeon at the Mayo Clinic. My current professional status is "Professor Emeritus". I have taught drawing and painting at the college level as a fulltime career for over 30 years. I prefer not to use the term "retired" since I am still very interested in teaching but felt a need for change with more time to explore, study and learn. I have a broad based BFA degree from Colorado State University which included drawing, painting, graphic design, illustration, printmaking and sculpture. My MFA was in painting at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I also studied drawing and printmaking. In addition I studied for over 4 years at a private Atelier which focused on drawing and painting. I have traveled extensively throughout my life including Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Nepal and Europe. My teaching experience started off when I was granted a 3 year Teaching Assistantship at the University of Wisconsin. Since then I have taught at the Columbus College of Art & Design in Ohio, Ithaca College in New York and The Ringling College of Art & Design in Sarasota, FL. I also taught at the Point-Aven School of Contemporary Art in France for a semester as part of a Sabbatical leave. I have work in private and corporate collections and more recently have exhibited in Ireland, where I have also taught. I have enjoyed numerous fellowships/residencies in France, California, New York, France and Ireland. My hobbies include swimming, kayaking, hiking, skiing and martial arts. I've spent over 20 years studying Aikido, a Japanese Martial Art and gave black belt status. I am currently looking for opportunities to spend time in other parts of the United States as well as the rest of the world.
I am currently working a new website.
