Flowers themselves are a work of Art making them a natural event companion in museums. J “paints” and sculpts” with flowers, foliage and plant material, using color combinations and unique textures to create Living Works of Art. Museum Programs may feature flowers and foliage from around the World – or take an “American Grown” approach. Flowers take center stage in compelling Artistic creations from this talented Flower Artist.

Botanical Gardens

Flowers make the occasion and J brings the Celebration when it comes to flowers and foliage. Using Nature’s own Flowers and Foliage, J creates artistic masterpieces for his audiences, all while sharing entertaining stories from a lifetime filled with flowers, J shares the beauty wonder and passion of the Flower World in his flower presentations.

"I attended a session given by none other than J Schwanke titled "Future Flower Trends". There is no better presenter at 8 am, than J!  He is like a flamboyant bumblebee stinging you with intellect and humor while making it all feel good. I will summarize what I learned by saying that you must keep your eyes and ears open to what is out there in front of you every day. Color, texture, form and theme. His hot new trends are Fairy Tale, Heirloom, Cumulus, and Fleur La Table."
