Where your pleasure is,

there is your treasure.

Where your treasure is, there is your heart.

Where you heart is,

there is your happiness!

 

 

Artisan Shawnnee Holmberg

     I began as a clothing designer and seamstress. Little did I realize, when I first arrived in Japan on a hot, rainy August night some 50 years ago, what a profound impact every aspect of that rich culture would have on me.

 

      Eleven years in Japan experiencing, absorbing, collecting, learning... Sumie-e (brush painting), Cha-no-yu (Tea Ceremony), Ikebana (Japanese Flower Arranging), Kimono, Folk Art, Kumihimo (traditional Japanses braiding), Friendships.





I was put on earth to accomplish a certain number of things.

Right now I am so far behind, 

I will never die.
