I am a gregarious extrovert. I enjoy meeting new people. When you come to visit, you will be in the middle of an active art and music studio. You will be staying at a social and friendly place. You will be staying in the home that I live in, and I will offer you much more than an air mattress on the floor. I have a comfortable king sized bed plus a double fold out bed for a second person. There will be music, art and people to meet. I raised three wonderful children who have blessed me with four precious grandchildren. I can't live without beauty, joy, my dog, my piano, my bicycle, dancing and drumming with friends, cooking good food and tending my wild Florida garden. I grew up on Long Island. I attended Catholic University as a Drama major, and got my first bachelors degree in Music Education from Adelphi University. I got my BFA from UNF and masters work in Advanced Curriculum Studies during the 80's and early 90's. I am a retired Artist in Residence for the Florida State Department of Cultural Affairs. I have operated my Art & Music Studio for 16 years. I offer private mentoring sessions in drawing, painting , clay sculpture, piano, guitar and voice. I play piano for special occasions and sell my art work. I love to travel and meet new people. I have been to many beautiful natural wonders in the United States. Yosemite, the Appalachian Trail, the Grand Canyon and the Giant Redwood forests have been favorite destinations. I still haven't made it to Yellowstone, but it is on my list. I also am itching to go to Barcelona to see Gaudi's work. I have been to Italy, France, England, Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Denmark, Sweden, Brazil, Mexico, Canada, Saint John (USVI), Belize and Costa Rica (where the scuba diving is gorgeous beyond words!) I have hosted students and teachers from Russia, China, Germany and France. It has given me valuable perspective on how much we have in common in so many ways. I have just finished reading Shantaram and Fierce Invalids Home From Hot Climates. My favorite shows are performed by Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas. My motto is: Enjoy life!

During your stay
I will cater to your needs as much as possible.
I live and work on the premises mentoring art and music students on a private basis, so I will sometimes be engaged with my students or doing studio work. But I am always only a tap on my door, a phone call, or text away.
