When I told my daughter, I was studying Ikebana she replied, “you’ve been doing that type of flower arranging for years”. It wasn’t until 2016 when I started studying under the wonderful guidance of Sandy Marker that I realised how much more there was to learn about Japanese flower arranging.
Thanks to the study of Ikebana, I have discovered so much. The observance of nature all around us, and to break it down to its most simple form; the beauty of one flower or some greenery, and the ability to make that piece stand out. I love the feeling of calmness an arrangement brings to my home and me.
