Meet the Artist: Marina Molares
This year we collaborated with the talented Marina Molares. A freelance graphic and surface designer and art director who draws, paints, makes collages, photos and patterns. Marina has collaborated with various companies and continues to create fun, vibrant and unique patterns. Here, at House of Au+ORA we are so lucky and excited to have a custom pattern designed by Marina. She is the mastermind behind our 2015 Venus Rising print, which will be showcasing in our Summer 2015 collection debuting in June 2015.

Marina always loved the idea of a hybrid between a plant and an animal. Botanists of the 17th and 18th century found a parallel between the trap of the plant—capturing and digesting insects—and certain aspects of female anatomy and behavior. The story goes that they named the plant after Venus, the pagan goddess of love and money.
Here are some of Marina’s fun, bold, and one-of-a-kind pattern and collages that we love!
