Shirley Evanoff

A career spanning nursing to garment construction for a leading Sydney Couturier, interests in painting, Botanical art, and many other art disciplines Shirley thought she needed a new direction for her artistic expression. Interest in all things Japanese the study of Sogetsu Ikebana, under her Sensei Sandy Marker, is a stepping-stone to learning more about the culture.

Ikebana is ‘not something I can hang on the wall like a painting and be around forever: it’s for the present’. In saying that Shirley has found the creative process of producing an arrangement a very peaceful experience and the next creation is always a new challenge waiting in the wings
