The Bower Studio is named after the bowerbird, which is known for decorating nests with colorful found objects. The studio was founded in 2011 by artists Isa Wang and Vincent Frano. They combined their interests in illustration and environmental stewardship to design beautiful and functional items that showcase the diversity of North American flora and fauna.
Today, The Bower Studio is based in Easthampton, MA and has grown into a small team of artists. We specialize in plantable seed cards and original illustrations. All of our creations are sustainably handmade with eco-friendly materials. We also donate 10% of profits to ecological organizations.
Isa is a designer and a multi-disciplinary artist.
His hobbies include horseback riding, video games, and petting Basil.
Vincent is an artist, herbalist, and horticulturalist.
He enjoys spending time with plants and insects in his garden and the forests around his home.
