Ikebana is a Japanese floral art literallt meaning “to bring flowers back to life”. In addition to flowers, ikebana works emphasize the vase, stems and branches.
Finding its roots in Zen, ikebana, beyond its decorative dimension is also a form of meditation that is practiced through repetition of the gesture and introspection to achieve one’s work.
The compositions made with fresh flowers evolve in time underlining the impermanent nature of things.
I was born and raised in Kyoto, Japan.
There I received the teaching of Master SUGISAKI Suizan who is the third Iemoto (head professor) of Kidou-mishoryu ikebana school.
In 2021, I obtained my qualification to teach this art in the style of the school and exhibited at Kyoto Botanical Garden. Also in 2021, I moved to France in Montpellier with my French husband.
Since 2022, I have been conducting ikebana and Japanese culture workshops in the south of France and creating ikebana exhibitions in accordance with the seasons.
I am a certified teacher of the Kidou-Mishoryu school and am authorized to give classes and deliver certificates on its behalf.
I regularly propose workshops in Montpellier with the ADRA association (Association Des Résidents d’Antigone).
I can also give private or group classes on demand.
