Portrait of a Girl

3 year Art in Bloom participant

Floral Products Used: acacia, rose, calla, mum, carnation, bird of paradise

As a child, Joan dreamed up enticingly exotic fantasy worlds radically different from her bleak, yet materially-comfortable childhood. Ever feisty, her art was a means of self-revelation, full of rich colors, patterns, spirited energy, and symbolism.

Floral Arrangement Inspired by...

standing blonde little girl with green eyes, wearing a pink dress with white polka dots, pink hair ribbon, white socks with pink trim, and red shoes, and holds a purple flower in her PR hand; girl has blank facial expression; girl stands in front of a wall mural with a blue and yellow dragon against a red ground with glitter highlights against a red ground with bold black Chinese characters; shiny black floor
