Minneapolis illustrator Kate Worum is a busy woman. She recently launched She She, a collaborative design firm with interior designer Jennifer Jorgenson that creates custom, hand-painted wallpaper, and by day she creates prints, patterns, and illustrations for a wide range of Target products.
This month, CB2 in partnership with custom art framing online service Framebridge are launching a collection of framed prints from five artists around the country, including Worum. Worum’s seven-piece collection was created combining calligraphic style, paints, and digital layering, and was inspired by a book of colorful textile patterns, the documentary film Advanced Style, trips to Spain and Greece, Matisse’s Blue Nudes, and “the diverse nature of the human body, from grandpa to bubble butts.” Each print is available in two to three sizes and comes with four different frame options, with prices ranging from $149 to $329.
“This year has been surreal, but to be a part of this really takes the cake,” Worum says of the experience creating prints for CB2. “Each one of these was created at a different time over the last three years, but they all have one thing in common: to bring happiness to myself and to others. I believe a little color or wit and whim can sometimes do just that.”
