I am a teacher of the Sogetsu School with 30 years experience and hold the Riji accreditation. I spent 3 months studying at Sogetsu HQ in 2014 as the recipient of the Norman and Mary Sparnon Scholarship. I have been teaching since 2004 and this year I have introduced a monthly Masterclass for the more experienced Sogetsu ikebanists. I have, also, ventured into sculpting, creating my own metal outdoor sculptures. I was involved in the creation of a large street sculpture called 'Love Flower', in collaboration with artist, John Meade.
