Cindy Chao, an enthusiastic floral art creator and once an intern in a florist’s in the United States, established the first western-style flower shop in Macao (Valentine Flower Shop) at her own cost after returning to the city. At the same time, she was successfully evaluated as a Certified Floral Designer by the American Institute of Floral Designers and received the continuing education diploma of Dutch Flower Arrangements (DFA) Instructor. During more than twenty years working on floral art creation, Chao has been invited to teach and perform in more than twenty countries and regions including China, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Malaysia, Thailand and the United States. She has acted as invited reviewer and advisor for several international floral art exhibitions, and led local representative competitors of floral art to competitions abroad for many times and achieved outstanding accomplishments. Most of Chao’s floral works feature the merge of Chinese and western cultures, and combine firmness and gentleness with exquisite texture.
