Janis Fowler is a 38 year old artist from South Carolina. She graduated in 2008 with a degree in architecture from Clemson University, but due to the recession at the time it was one of the most difficult professions to get hired into. Fowler decided to move to Austin right after graduation to try for an architecture job, but quickly switched to bartending and waiting tables as a way to make ends meet. Art has always been a passion of hers, and as time went on she was offered spots on the walls of the restaurants she worked at to display and sell the art she was creating in her free time.
“The success of my small art business has grown organically and chaotically since that day, and it remains a wonder to me that it came to be at all. My work has also been through many stages of growth, starting out as graphite portraits and later becoming playful, colorful paintings of people and animals, sometimes combined with landscapes and psychedelic elements.”
“I’m so thankful for the places that have enabled my success, one of the biggest places being Miller Blueprint. I became a Miller customer at the recommendation of another artist back around 2011, and have been blown away by their quality and customer service ever since. Thanks to the amazing work of Dana, I’ve been able to confidently sell prints of my work knowing the quality of the prints are absolute top-tier and the colors are spot on. It is such a joy to come into the 7th street location and see Dana and Larry and the rest of the crew as well. Miller Blueprint is just the best.”
