After twelve years she received her Seal Diploma and a Master Diploma designating her a Nanga Master.
During World War II she and her sister Edith left Japan. They arrived in Vancouver in 1940 and then settled in Toronto. The first years she worked for a commercial firm doing floral studies. From 1955 to 1965 she taught the Nanga technique to Japanese in Canada.
