My introduction to floral design was through Sogetsu School of Ikebana. Through Sogetsu Ikebana, I learned that flower arranging is not mere decoration, but a form of art. I absolutely love flowers, art and nature. I have a floral studio, I have an art studio and I live in the picturesque town of Sonora, California on top of a hill.
I have over fifteen years experience in the floral industry. My foundations in the floral industry are rooted in San Francisco: Sogetsu School of Ikebana and SF City College Floral Design. In my first year of study, I won 3rd place in the student national competition for American Institute of Floral Design (AIFD).
