I was a very active member and have regularly drawn and colored many other fan arts.
Believe it or not, but I have lost interest and pleasure in draw.
My last drawing was 2011, 2 years ago - even before that I haven't drawn 6 months.My last picture was colorized in May 2011 - also 2 years ago.
But the pleasure is gone - I recently cleaned my gallery and deleted many pictures what interested nobody
Even my photography/macro shots I've been neglecting.I have many photographs which I haven't yet shown here.
Perhaps the time is coming back but right now I would rather like to see the Asian side of me, even if it's sometimes just little things like food and drinks/still life.
And here begins my story...
You probably already noticed that I'm very often in Japan - not only because it's the anime stronghold (anime / manga doesn't interest me when I'm in japan)! I travel to Japan for over 10 years.I have many friends and nice people there that are a part of my life!
Private life in Japan
We have been settled there for years and we bought a house, complete traditional.It's a blessing for us, a nice retreat with much nature.Far from tourism in a quiet area
Fine, I'll tell you. We live in Kyoto - even though summer is very humid there and the winter cold.We opted for Kyoto because Tokyo is too stressful.We have been living in Tokyo but have noticed that you can live there hardly relaxed.Likewise, because my best friend had his work and residence in Kyoto after he left his roots in Onagawa, Miyagi.
Onagawa is now a sad place, it was almost completely destroyed by the Tsunami in 2011 and the construction lasts and lasts.As in the other regions of the 3/11.After much back and forth is his family, which has survived the Tsunami, moved to Kyoto and now live in our near
It's a relief that Obaa-san,Okaa-san and Otou-san to have in our near.Obaa-san is almost 100 years old and a funny tiny old woman.I love her, she replace my grandparents, it's really nice to have still grandparents.If my grandmother was still alive, the two would be best friends
Now to bring it to the point:
Last year I was a long time in Japan and had many reasons which I will tell you.
short and sweet - Next year i have my own flower shop in Tokyo! Yes, I live in Germany, where I also own two flower shops but I have the chance to expand my work!
a small career path for you:
13 years old: I made my first internship where I was very unhappy
14 years old: I met on holiday a very atractive young man who is now my husband and made in his fathers hotel, which has its own flower shop, my internship.
Until I was 17 age I was allowed to help out in many flower shops and was employed
17 years old: I started my 3-year vocational training for florist
21 years old: I did my master and I opened my first flower shop
22 years old: I met Masamitsu Amemiya and became acquainted with Akiyo Sano.Sano is a very successful Ikebana artist
23 years old: after the first experience of international florist art I started the Ikebana art in the Sogetsu School in Japan under the direction of Iemoto (headmaster) Akane Teshigahara (very successful female Ikenbana artist)
25 years old: after 2 years of studying Ikebana in Japan at various artists I enlarged my flower shop and made Ikebana design
29 years old: I opened my second flower shop
30 years old: some time ago I accepted an offer and have my own flower shop in Tokyo/Japan
The current state of things: I also live in Japan, it's easier for me, otherwise I would never have done this big deal. My husband is leading a hotel in Japan and we see us very often.I will mix European with Japanese florist art.Akiyo Sano has become a good friend since the time in Japan and have also become competitor.
It was a lot of work and a lot I had to learn but I have arrived a point where it can't be better Try your way and trust your future!Work by Akane Teshigahara
