Karen Brost Whyte is a designer and fine illustrator who has spent her life and career curating and creating beautiful things. Her inimitable illustrations are hand-drawn from her London studio before being brought to life in seasonal collections
ZaZaBoom! was born in Spring 2020, from a desire to capture the moment when life as we knew it had paused, giving us all the space for reflection and re-evaluation. Karen’s beautiful illustrations were combined with love, community and togetherness, resulting in a collection of joyful pieces which were auctioned to raise over £10,000 for charity.
The spirit of that moment in time lives on, through a series of curated collections, inspired by the simplistic joy and beauty of life’s little luxuries.
Being able to enjoy those little luxuries is a privilege we believe everyone should have. As well as sharing the joy of bold, beautiful art, we want ZaZaBoom! to stand for love, kindness and positive progress and that’s why we donate 5% of all of our sales to a range of extraordinary charities who are helping to create the world we want to live in.
This Christmas we find ourselves in the throws of a global mental health emergency and have therefor decided that the best avenue for our pay-it-forward concept is to support MIND, a dynamic charity that was founded in England and Wales in 1946. Mind provides advice and support to empower anyone experiencing mental health problems as well as lobbies for more support from governing bodies. Now, more than every, we need to look after the mental and physical health of those suffering during the devastating events of the pandemic.
