"Lisa is a cheerful and friendly lady with profound knowledge of Japan. She instructs us with easy and simple English, so if you are hesitating to take her class because of your English, there is nothing to worry about !"
"As a volunteer at BloomAgainBklyn, Lisa was a special guest facilitator for a GrowNYC workshop on upcycled arrangements using found natural items including leaves, flowers, pinecones, etc for our school gardening community. Lisa welcomed our school gardeners into her virtual floral studio and made sure to have something for everyone. At a time when people are learning and working from home, she taught them to make something beautiful, a powerful reminder of the beauty we all need to see in our new, changed world. She was such a pro at hosting the audience. Even though we were technically co-hosting, we relaxed and enjoyed the workshop ourselves!"

“Lisa's demonstration to our garden club was totally engaging. Our members, which include many master designers, were enthralled. Her arrangements were so creative, so completely original; the product sources, design tips and techniques she shared so instructive; and her presentation so congenial and relaxed. Lisa is an enthusiastic teacher eager to share her skills. Her experience living in other cultures informs her work which is truly floral art. It is a privilege to recommend her.”

"Our garden club was recently treated to Lisa's delightful program, "A Floral Journey to Germany and Belgium. Her beautiful slide presentation carried us with her as she described unique cultural differences in floral design. She also demonstrated how to put these extraordinary techniques into practice by creating an exquisite, one-of-a-kind winter wreath. Lisa is a masterful speaker and teacher and her charming, down-to earth-personality set a tone of ease, intimacy and fun with our club members, even within the virtual context. What a great night! Thank you, Lisa "
