About the Presenter

Flo Bowen grew up in Saigon, Vietnam, and Paris, France absorbing both cultures. Flo learned Ikebana from her mother who would drive around tropical Saigon foraging for interesting materials, a skill that Flo has adopted. 

Flo joined the Austin Ikebana study group in 1999 and studied Ichiyo under Don Olsen. Flo’s Ikebana demonstration was featured in the Austin American Statesman in 2016. (https://bit.ly/3HCCFQH)

Flo constantly studies other Ikebana styles such as Sogetsu. She now pursues her passion for flowers as a floral designer, combining Western and Ikebana styles to create original designs for private and commercial clients.
