Brenna Quan approaches floristry from a creative standpoint. Her artistic expression developed in her early life, studying dance and theatre, which eventually landed her on stages across the United States and Canada as a professional dancer. During this time, she discovered the emotional connection between flowers & the human spirit, making her keen on developing this other art form.
Now an award-winning floral artist and educator based in Vancouver, Canada, she is recognized for her detailed design work in public exhibitions such as Fleurs de Villes, as well as imaginative pieces shared in demonstrations, on her social media platform and in various floral art book compilations. As a competitor, some notable accolades include 1st place in the 2016 & 2019 Pacific NW Design Competitions, 1st place in the 2019 Maple Leaf Cup & the runner-up in 2016’s Gateway to the Americas Cup, representing Canada. She accepted an invitation to once again compete in the Gateway competition in Orlando, Florida this summer, in tandem with the 2022 Maple Leaf Cup.
As a member of the American Institute of Floral Designers, she has been a main stage presenter and is delighted to be showcasing the Hawaii Floriculture & Nursery Association (HFNA) for “Roots” in Las Vegas this July alongside her
island sisters! She currently serves as Vice-President of the NW Chapter Executive Board & is the incoming President-Elect. Knowledge sharing, inspiring creativity and continuously experimenting with her style and design
methods keep her energized!
