my art now at Urban Outfitters!

Mar 6, 2014

In the summer of 2013, I was excited to receive an email from Urban Outfitters expressing their interest in my art.  I had never licensed my art before, so, naturally, I had lots of questions about the whole process.  From the get-go, the company was very receptive to my questions and requests, including those involving the manufacturing of my art.

After working closely with Urban Outfitters for several months, I am thrilled to announce that my art is now available in their stores!  There are three pieces in the collection, and all the items are made domestically.  Exclusive to Urban Outfitters are the two works on wood slab- Journey and CascadeMountain, which is a 13" x 13" print, is printed on archival paper with archival inks.

Also at Urban Outfitters are the lovely works of Portland artists Betsy Walton and Yellena James. When I had a brick and mortar shop in town, I used to carry art made by both of these talented ladies.  Feast your eyes on these stunning wall murals by Betsy and Yellena:

Portland artist Ashley Goldberg has been working with Urban Outfitters since 2008. Along with her beautiful wall art, she has her own bedding collection! 

A fun little fact: my vintage mini loom belonged to Ashley G.
I love the large brushstroke blocks on the duvet cover.  Ashley's complete Char-Bea home collection can be found here.  If you are curious to learn more about art licensing, Ashley wrote a great article last September for Etsy titled "How to Strike a Successful Licensing Deal."

I love your work, Cathie! I found you when I googled Jon Jay Cruson to see his work and saw his paintings on one of your 2011 posts. I met him earlier this week as my seatmate on a flight from Mexico. His work is very interesting and appealing on many levels.
But so is yours! And I like your "fabric tape" post a lot. As a mixed media artist, this kind of project is up my alley. There is another way to do it with your inkjet printer (although it is on ribbon and is not sticky). Check it out on my June 6, 2010 blog post ( "More Fiber Collage Adventures." Really fun to play around with.
I'm subscribing to your blog - fun to see what you do!

So excited for you. So, so very cool that you requested (from what I gathered) to have your work made domestically. I was just thinking recently how a lot seems lost when some beautiful work is mass produced in a country where the means of creating it are questionable. Awesome, awesome for you!!! Glad to that you are back to blogging. It's great inspiration following your blog.
