I started learning Ikebana since when I was ten, and studied graphic design after high school. My design background is what makes my approach to Ikebana particularly distinctive. I studied in Kyoto for three years, and received a diploma of Ikebana teaching. I've been teaching ever since, for decades, and I still enjoy it very much.

I was born in Fukuoka, and spent the first half of my life in Japan, but came to Australia in the 90s to indulge in Australia's ocean lifestyle. The sea continuously inspires me, and I've developed a passion for surf art. I paint on canvases, as well as seashore gems like sea glass and driftwood. The unique style of my surf art is shaped by my knowledge of Ikebana.
