Anna started learning Ikebana in 2012 at Seishincho Community Center in Edogawa-ku, Tokyo following the Sogetsu School curriculum. Before that, she had been arranging flowers for weddings and events for more than 10 years. This is part of her family's cakes and flower business in addition to her job as an urban planner. 

In 2017 she received her Third Level Teacher's certificate (Sankyu Shihan). Since 2013 Anna participates in the annual Seishincho Community Ikebana Exhibition. She also had her own exhibitions together with a pottery artist - 2016: Okaeri! (Welcome Home) in Tokyo; and 2017: Voyage (An Ikebana and Pottery Exhibition) in Yokohama. In 2015, one of her works won the Ikebana Gallery People's Choice Award.
