"Sharing my love of ikebana is a joyful experience. Working with people who love flowers, love Japan or are simply curious about ikebana gives me great satisfaction. The creative, meditative and mindful aspects of Japanese flower arrangement provide a fantastic counterbalance to our busy lives, and bring beauty into our hearts, minds and homes."
