Jan Gordon, owner of East Meets West Flowers, your local florist in Pleasantville, NY, possesses great respect for nature and the environment. Her time spent in Japan allowed her to absorb the nature of flowers and their complexities due to Asian influences of balance and line. Jan recognizes that each season offers an opportunity to celebrate the natural changes and express them through an original and expressive floral design. This Pleasantville florist blends Asian and American design concepts that include elements of line, color, mass, space, movement, negative space, varying heights and asymmetry. East Meets West Flowers can create arrangements that incorporate design elements of high, medium, and low heights of the flower. These heights represent man, nature, and the spirit. When looking at an arrangement which includes varying heights, the viewer can be reminded of the past, present, and future. The viewer is reminded of the integrity, complexity, and comfort of nature.
Jan L. Gordon lived in Japan and studied Ikebana, the traditional art of Japanese flower arranging dating back to the 15th Century. She developed her own style of floral design which she calls “Asian Fusion.” Asian Fusion unites some of the principles of Asian floral design with an American style that incorporates many more fresh flowers. Her lush floral designs will bring energy and beauty into your space for any occasion.
Jan is the owner of “East Meets West Flowers”. Jan collaborates with other florists and completed the floral design program at the New York Botanical Garden. Personal one-on-one instruction is available.
