Each map is filled with detail.
I start each commission with your list of important places, activities, and items.
Your photos, memories, and suggestions are what make the map so apt and
I welcome your input as I work.
I also research the area myself
to enhance design elements.
Scale and proportion are handled
in a whimsical manner; each map is laid out with aesthetic topography
and a spirit of precision in mind.
After my pencil sketch meets your approval, the final 14x17 map
is outlined with black ink and
given life with watercolor paint.
My maps are one-of-a-kind works of art.
Created with ink and watercolor,
each original piece celebrates
personal experience and
a love of place.
Every project is perfectly suited to
an individual purpose or occasion and
makes a unique gift, remembrance, or representation.
They have been created to recognize
vacations, weddings, birthdays,
town events, family reunions, anniversaries,
retirements and holidays.
Most recently, I have created a guide to Princeton, NJ, a school campus map and a map of Maine's Acadia National Park.
My original maps have been reproduced as
posters, campus and local area guides,
wedding program covers,
party favors, and notecards.
Prices start at $450 for
unframed 14 x 17 designs
to be used for personal reproduction only.
