About Keiko Kubo

Keiko Kubo grew up in Japan, where she took ikebana classes with her mother as a teenager and eventually went on to obtain her teaching license for ikebana. After graduating from college, Keiko came to the states to pursue studies in art and graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with a master of fine arts in sculpture. While in graduate school she also studied Western floral art. Her style is a unique blend of these three major influences: traditional ikebana, Western floral arrangements, and sculptural art. She currently lives in Chicago and is the author of "Keiko's Ikebana" (Tuttle, 2006).
