I am a textile and banner artist, art professor and baker. My house is a 1920s bungalow with a straw bale addition and a huge kitchen. The house is located 1/2 block from the B-Line pedestrian and bicycle path. I teach drawing and art appreciation at a local community college. I am starting a micro-bakery in my back yard and I bake artisan style naturally leavened bread. I love traveling to Rome, especially Trastevere and the American Academy. I lead an art parade for the Lotus World Music and Arts Festival in September and create a huge party for the Pride Film Festival in January. We have between 2 and 4 dinners with amazing Italian and creative food with friends, neighbors and roommates. I am passionate about Dutch bicycles, bread, pasta, urban design, community and beauty.
Staying here you will have your own bath and sitting area along with the bedroom(s) in the bungalow part of the house. You will be invited to dinner with neighbors and given a loaf of fresh bread. My favorite style of traveling is to stay in a house with my private area but with easy access to meals and conversation.
