HI! I'M GERI
I live in beautiful Bend, Oregon, where unique and inspiring Ikebana flora abounds. I took up and fell in love with Ikebana as a natural extension of the Japanese fine-art business my husband and I have run for nearly 20 years. I'm a teacher in the Sogetsu School. My sensei is Los Angeles master Kaz Kitajima. In 2016, I received my certification from the Sogetsu Teachers' Association in Tokyo, Japan. My arrangements have been shown at the Portland Japanese Garden, LA County Arboretum and Botanic Gardens, Descanso Gardens, Japanese Garden of San Fernando Valley, Japan-American Center in downtown LA and elsewhere.
