Jenifer had a love for arts & crafts since childhood.  Her strong passion for the arts and her motivation to learn the Japanese culture during her eight years of residency in Japan has driven her to learn the unique crafting of DECO Clay. She started her journey in 2006 and has been an ardent lover of DECO, teaching and promoting it since.

What is your most memorable achievement(s) with DECO?
My most memorable achievements with DECO is becoming the first Indian student in 2006, becoming the first Indian DECO Instructor in 2008, and holding DECO exhibitions in India since 2011 along with Consulate General of Japan, Chennai.

What is your favorite thing to create with clay?
I enjoy creating contemporary floral arrangements, wall decors, and earrings.

What are your future goals as a DECO Instructor?
My future goals as a DECO Instructor are to spread this lovely Japanese clay art to Indians as well as Japanese living in India through teaching, become a "Master Instructor", and to do Indian Wedding Stage Decoration using only DECO Clay Flowers (Long term goal).
