About Iovanna Lloyd Pieper

Iovanna Lloyd Wright was the only child of architect Frank Lloyd Wright and his third wife, Olgivanna Lloyd Wright (née Lazovich Miljanova).

She lived with her parents and sister Svetlana at Taliesin in Wisconsin and Taliesin West, in Scottsdale, Arizona, from her childhood until she went to France in 1949, and afterward.

She studied dance with Georges Ivanovich Gurdjieff, in Paris, and when she returned to Taliesin, she began to choreograph and to write "dance-dramas", which were scored with her mother's music. These were presented annually and were called the Taliesin Festival of Music and Dance.

Iovanna Lloyd Wright was a very beautiful, magnetic, tremendously creative and talented woman. Her poetry and prose writings, from early on in her life, have distinction and courage.

She is survived by her only child, Eve Lloyd Wright, and by her nephews Eric Lloyd Wright and Brandoch Peters.
