About the artist:
In my career I was a primary school teacher and school principal.  After retiring, I took up ikebana.  I now have my ikebana teaching certificate. I love passing my passion for this art form on to others and often do demonstrations for groups.  I have been interested in ikebana for a very long time and now have the time to involve myself in this art form.
