A bit about Carmen:
I’m a visual artist in my early 40’s who also teaches in sculpture and works in a gallery. I'm a social creature but need my space and moments of solitude. To me this home is a haven more than a social hub but I love to share a home-cooked meal with friends from time to time. On the home front you’ll usually find me watching films, cooking, working on various projects, gardening, indulging in music or books and generally pottering. I enjoy living with folks who inspire hearty conversation who I can develop a friendship with over time and share the odd meal/drink/movie/scrabble-match/tv series binge/social occasion.

A bit about Linda:
I'm Linda, 40, a primary school relief teacher and also work with adults who have disabilities. I'm a queer eco-feminist leftie! I like cooking and camping with friends, being around water and nature. I like to read, craft and get creative. I also like to play the odd board game, watch films and have a good yarn!
