My husband Javier and I love to travel. Javier is from Madrid and I am a Santa Monica native. I have lived in Nepal and Thailand, each for a month, London for a year and Japan for almost 4 years working for the Japanese government as an English teacher. Between us we speak English, French, Spanish and some Japanese. We encourage families to visit our home. We have two boys.
I have a BFA in fine art and before having children I started my own business with the money I saved in Japan doing decorative painting in high end homes. Gold leaf, sky ceilings, lime wash finishes, frescoes, egg tempera and other decorative finishes. I LOVE to paint, design and draw!
Javier and I are also crazy about Japanese design and we are inspired by the culture, architecture and food. Maybe you will feel a Japanese sensibility when you visit?
