In 2019 I realized a lifelong dream and relocated to Tokyo. Since coming here I’ve immersed myself in the practical study of traditional crafts. My teachers are masters, who with little words initiate me into a long tradition and a greater way of looking at things.
The Japanese art of ikebana has become one of my great passions. I study at "Ikenobo" at a local Buddhist temple. Inspired by Ikebana's ideas and philosophy I create modern "Nature Couture" arrangments, objects and installation.
Contact me for workshops and collaborations related to Ikebana and Nature.
Ikebana – Traditional Japanese flower arrangement
I have been studying and practicing Ikebana - Japanese flower arrangement art since 2019 at Ikenobo.
Ikebana began with Ikenobo over 550 years and Ikenobo is said to be the origin of ikebana.
Like a poem or painting made with flowers, Ikenobo’s ikebana expresses both the beauty of flowers and the beauty of longing in our own hearts.
In 2022 I was invited to participate at the Ikenobo annual exhibition at Mitsukoshi, Tokyo. My arrangement was shown among selected Ikebana artists from around Japan.
