WHAT IS IN A
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.
