Joan Lok signs her artworks “Rong-Rong”, a childhood nickname that means "Joy and Happiness".  “Joan” and "Rong" share a similar melodic line and thus her American name Joan.  The artist's parents named her “Mei-Lok”, which means, “True Happiness comes from the Beauty of the Heart.”  “Mei” literally means “Beauty” and “Lok” means “Happiness".  Joan’s Mom believes that true beauty is not just the aesthetic appearance but the attainment of wisdom and kindness.  Joan’s Dad added that happiness is attained not by the gathering of material wealth but the knowing of one’s richness from within.  “True happiness comes from the beauty of the heart” has been Joan’s motto in her art and in her life.
