Looking to Sit

Wanted in Illinois United States of America

Listing #142482

Searching for a small place to edit my manuscript

I am a conceptual artist, faculty at Cornish College, and writer who is looking to spend some time editing her manuscript in a new place. My ideal home to sit is small, sunny, and cozy, either in a rural location with land, or in an urban location with a walkable neighborhood.

I am clean, a non-smoker, and someone who drinks just a few times a year. Born in India, raised in the Midwestern United States, and currently located in Seattle, WA, USA, where I own a small house on a large hill with a dog and my partner, I have experience teaching and traveling in Japan, South America, and Asia.

Mostly I just need a change of pace, a place where I can go on long walks, and a table or desk to write at. Full bookshelves and a gas stovetop are a plus.

I have experience cat sitting, dog sitting (my favorite), and housesitting. I have worked on a farm and had my own garden, so you can trust your plants, gardens, and chickens with me.

Open to anywhere in the world, to be honest.

I am an artist and curator, mostly large-scale installations and sculpture, who is based in Seattle, WA, where I own a small house with a big yard on a hill with old-growth pines to keep me company. -- Currently teaching online, I am looking for places to housesit while I edit the manuscript for my first book. I am a non-smoker, a rare drinker, and a quiet, contemplative person looking for a change of pace and a place where I can go on long walks and read in bed. -- I have housesitting, cat sitting, and dog sitting experience. I was born in Panjab but raised mostly in the Midwest (Chicago and Michigan), and have traveled to and taught classes in Japan, South America, and South Asia.
