Joan Mercer Artist & Gardener|
Journey down the garden path….
The center of Joan Mercer's personal universe has been flowers and plants for over forty years, and her life has revolved around combining her love of art and her love of flowers ever since. After majoring in art at St. Cloud University in Minnesota, she moved to Phoenix, Az. and worked at a retail plant nursery while studying the secret life of plants at Arizona State University. In 1980 she earned her B.S. degree in horticulture while managing the nursery. A deep desire to leave the desert behind for the lush tropical climate of Maui, with it's year round growing season, lured Joan to the island in 1981.
