What Student's Say
“Tom’s unconventional holistic approach in his teaching is essentially relevant to reach your highest creative potential. His profound insight and knowledge of the often seemingly elusive creative energy that exists in all of us, is solid and real because it comes from a place of his own lived experience as an artist. His humble curiosity to keep learning himself and his unwavering courage to dare to be different remains an enormous source of inspiration.
I have been in the creative flower/plant/design industry for many years without a clear understanding of the meaning and direction of where I was going. Tom gave me much more than flower material and techniques as tools to practice floral design. He gave me the priceless material of self-awareness and mindfulness to shape not only my career but my entire life as art.”

“The week of the course I came in a skeptic, an independent person who did everything myself. At Tom’s Masterclass Course we learned about self-reflection and at that moment the world change for me. I could look at myself and see what my deep desires were which is so important in finding peace and achieving goals in my life. I was also changed by the group of individuals, we grew as one big family. I believe everybody who participated had an evolution during the master class course. I never dreamed of the things I was looking at the scores. And for that a great thanks to Tom, the Master, and Erin, the silent engine behind the duo.

FEEDBACK FROM TOM'S STUDENTS
Flower Designer & Student
“I think on one of the most important things to learn from a teacher is how to grasp the rhythm of beauty & how to design the core concept of beauty, and I think this (learning with Tom) is the place to do this.”
