Custom Murals

Worker Bird Murals add character and one-of-a-kind charm to public and private spaces. Custom illustrations are hand drawn or painted by artist and maker Kim Fox.

Kim harnesses her creative capacities for Worker Bird’s signature goods and custom projects. An illustrator, builder, painter, collector, salvager, designer, and sewer, Kim draws inspiration and materials from the world around her. From salvaged custom tin house numbers to bold, drawn murals, Kim’s capacity for crafting interior and exterior design elements is boundless. Her skills and unique aesthetic turn everyday subjects into timeless expressions.

Working with Bootstrap Design Co., Kim recently created large chalkboard murals for Earth Inspired Salads in Pittsburgh’s Alcoa Building. The custom design shown illustrates the fresh ingredients of the restaurant’s menu.
