I'm an Ikebana artist, accredited with Professor Diploma (2nd  Sanyo) by Akane Teshigahara, the fourth Iemoto of Sogetsu Foundation, Tokyo.

I create a space with flowers, plants, and any other materials, for people to contemplate, to celebrate and to enjoy.

I currently reside in Jena, Germany.

I was born in a small and beautiful village in south China, but spent most of my adult life in the mega cities of Tianjin, Shenzhen, and Shanghai. I have studied and worked in the UK, Germany and Japan. I am fascinated by garden design, and have toured over 100 gardens throughout Europe and Japan for inspiration.

It's hard to define me. 

Perhaps the statement by Johann Gottlieb Fichte in his book, 'The Vocation of Man (Die Bestimmung des Menschen)', 140 years ago, comes close:

"My mind can take no hold on the present world, nor rest in it a moment, but my whole nature rushes onward with irresistible force towards a future and better state of being.” 

Such is my force.
