Tell us who you are & what you make. 
Aurora is a creative collective. Our name “Aurora” was inspired by and named after the aurora lights. People travel from far to see an Aurora and for those lucky enough to behold it, it’s a magical, unforgettable and once-in-a-lifetime experience… and apparently, scientifically speaking, a natural phenomenon that is not fully understood. The universe is filled with mysteries like this that we can’t always explain. From undiscovered creatures to unexplained natural and cosmic phenomena, there is no limit to the mysteries of our world. Yet, for the most part, the amazingness of the world around us often tends to go unnoticed. At Aurora, we notice. In fact, the more mysterious and amazing things get, the better. It means that we can use our imaginations to fill in the gaps… and we really love using our imaginations. Did you know that humans have only explored 10 percent of the ocean? Who knows what mysterious and glorious creatures lurk in those deep waters? We can only dream! At Aurora we have the overwhelming need to create things that are absolutely unique, once-in-a-lifetime and truly…. Phenomenal. Visit our Etsy shop for limited edition, hand made, one-of-a-kind prints and illustrations.


Favorite Holiday Memory:

Aurora is based in Cape Town, South Africa and so our festive season is also the hottest season of the year! South Africans spend it outdoors, lying on beaches and enjoying the warm summer sun! This is a total opposite of the American/ European experience of the Festive Season which involves lots of cold, snow and gluhwein! SO, my favorite holiday memory is definitely experiencing a real European Christmas two years ago! I played in the snow (and got many strange looks from locals), went snowboarding in the French Alps, visited Christmas Markets in Cologne, Germany and drank PLENTY of Gluhwein! Best Holiday Ever!
