About me

It all started with a deep love of flowers. Having been brought up on the Belgian/Dutch borders,flowers were all around. I loved going to the flower market, whatever the time of year. The fragrance, colours and shapes always brought a smile to my face and I continued to have flowers around the house, where ever I lived.


Then, in 1992, I had my first encounter with Ikebana. It was at a demonstration at ‘Art in Action’ held in Waterperry, Oxfordshire. A Japanese lady in a beautiful sky blue kimono, held the attention of a packed tent while she made this wonderful arrangement in a boat. Since then, I have always deeply admired the art form.


Then in 2018, I had the opportunity to study Ikebana
and fulfilled my ambition to be able to teach, guided by Di Norman, Sub Grand Master

of the Ohara School.
