I am an artist,writer, singer, instructor, tour guide and Renaissance woman. I have loved Florence since coming here for the first time over 6 years ago. I am half Italian and half Dutch ( with a little Irish thrown in) and originally from Canada. My ancestors come from Northern Italy. I am currently living here while completing my Graduate degree.
Why was Florence the heart of the Renaissance ? Hear the story, see where Art, history, food and culture meet! Walk the same streets as Michelangelo, Leonardo and Galileo . See how their lives changed us .If you love art, history and culture and want to know more - I'm your guide! But let's not forget about food, the markets, restaurants, events and must-see sites/galleries/locations. See Florence through an Artist's Eyes and you will fall in love with Florence too!
