Mirland Terlonge (American b. 1991) is a multidisciplinary artist from Miami, Florida. She received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Florida and an MFA in Painting and Drawing from Pratt Institute. Additionally, she earned an Advanced certificate in Art & Design Education. Currently she teaches art to grades Pre-K -8th as a public school teacher in New York City.
Her artwork is heavily influenced by her childhood experiences of working along-side her mother who is an Event Florist. She uses flowers metaphorically in her work to explore themes such as, beauty, life, death, spirit, and vitality. Her creative process is also a healing process through which she deeply engages with ancestral patterns, historical trauma, gifts and shared experience.
