Lauren is influenced and inspired by fynbos. Her daily walks on the mountain maintains her connection to the Cape floral kingdom and it shows in her work. Her other creative influence is that of the spirit realm, sacred geometry and patterns. The detailed abstract works, pattern and mandala work are all a place for meditation.
Who is Lauren Fowler & what was the idea behind your brand?
How it started?
I had some drawings that I had laid out for my portfolio and someone asked me where they could buy a print of it. It was then that I started producing greeting cards and art prints. Honestly, nothing was thought out and I’ve just been following my nose ever since.
Lauren Fowler Art has been with KNUS almost from the beginning and it is amazing to work with local artist like herself. For KNUS it's important to help local businesses grow and to give exposure to them.
Supporting local artists means that you keep money in our country circulating. All of my products are produced here in Cape Town. I buy my paper and pens from a woman owned art supply shop, I print with a local printer, all my packaging is form a local supplier and my products are then sold in South African shops, either online or brick and mortar. It keeps the cycle going. My artworks are influenced by the floral kingdom of the Western Cape, so a lot of my work has a South African flavour which other South Africans appreciate and enjoy.
I really love snakes and all the mythology they communicate.
When you started selling on the KNUS platform, how has this impacted your business?
I love selling on KNUS, because it’s an easy way to access a larger audience that you wouldn’t find normally. I love being alongside such beautiful South African brands too.
Selling through KNUS means that I can access a larger market without having to put in the time and effort into marketing and advertising. It’s effortlessly done by being part of the KNUS brand.
