I created my first Coastal Art Map when I was searching for a nautical chart of my favorite local coast to hang in my own living room. All the charts I found didn't suite my aesthetic. I longed for a cleaner, more artful version of the nautical chart. Carefully referencing many charts and maps, I painted a watercolor of my favorite coastline. Finally, I had a nautical chart that both referenced the area I wanted and I could hang in my living room as a piece of art... a Coastal Art Map.
I reference nautical charts and maps for each coastline I paint. The watercolor paintings are reproduced on canvas and hung on my own unique, handmade frame for a clean, modern feel.
