Priscilla Hauser is widely known as the Queen of Decorative Art. I knew of her through Japanese craft magazines even when I was in Japan. Back then, it never even crossedmy mind that I would get the chance to receive guidance from her directly...
When I first met her, I couldn't believe that the Queen was actually in front of me. I blurted out, "Are you really Priscilla?" She laughed at me and replied, "Of course."
This maybe something tht everyone thinks as well, but her humor and energy never ceases to amaze me. Her achievement of spreading Decorative Art not only in the United States but in other countries including Japan is truly phenomenal. And although she is called the Queen, she is friendly towards everyone and is a very kind and wonderful lady. When my birthday happened to be during her seminar, and she held a miniparty for me.
"Miho - You have real talent - Now go for it! You will be one of the very best!" With the words she gave me always in mind, I want to keep trying hard in my own way.
