Valerie has lived in Japan, Canada, and various cities in the U.S., teaching demonstrating and exhibiting extensively. She received her Master’s certificate in 1992 and in 2006 was appointed President of the Washington, D.C., Chapter of the Ichiyo School by Iemoto Akihiro Kasuya.

In 2009, she was appointed Executive Master which is the highest Ichiyo School rank held outside of Japan.

ICHIYO SCHOOL www.ichiyodc.com

The Ichiyo School was founded on the idea of creating original ikebana suitable for modern lifestyles and all environments and spaces. Ichiyo style Ikebana encourages personal interpretation within the rules of construction. That combined with imagination is considered as essential to creative designs as the materials and containers. "If flower arranging is to be truly fulfilling, it should be a reflection of oneself." The current Iemoto, Akihiro Kasuya, specializes in combining materials through a natural balance of their weights, rather than by fastening the materials down with a kenzan or komi. Through balancing the materials, he aims to bring materials and containers together into a mutually cooperative position.
