I am a working artist, who travels widely and I often teach ESL abroad. It is with great pleasure that I have the time to tend my perennial gardens, work in my onsite studio, take long beach walks by my home. I have 3 adorable grandchildren that love visiting with me here on the beach! I love to read, watch great foreign films, and spend as much time as possible with friends both in Canada and abroad. I so enjoy meeting new people via Airbnb and have had amazing travel experiences staying in terrific bookings all over the world!
