I have taught many age groups from 5th year university, highschool to elementary. My present love is the visual arts...sculpting and oil painting. It expresses my fondness for various cultures and travelling. I have begun organizing information for a book which requires me to travel in Europe, especially Italy, France and Denmark. Housesitting would bring me closer to the community which would be the foundation for my writing. My heart is full of love for these and other European countries and will be reflected in any associations I make as well as in my writing. Please be assured your home will be in capable hands. I am actively involved in environmental movements which makes me very respectful for all utilities, water use and general upkeep of my home wherever that may be. I also am travelling in the most conscious ways. Thank you for your consideration.
