She currently lives and works in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where she specializes in illustrating maps of all 50 states, wedding announcements, and illustrated quotes for prints and cards. Some of her clients include Southern Living Magazine, Allport Editions, and Rumblebea’s Biscuits.

I first discovered her work when I saw one of her maps was a runner-up in the Creative and Curious contest co-sponsored by They Draw and Travel and Uppercase magazine.

Check out her illustrated map series, which she sells prints of in her Etsy shop.

I love the handlettering she adds to each piece, and her fun doodled icons and graphic elements. The colors and contrasts really make even the tiniest features pop off the page.

Check out how she interpreted a photo of spring flowers into a charming sketch of a spring scene on her blog.

Hope you are looking for some inspiration today.
