“The map series began nine years ago with my love for old maps. I feel my images are very sweet and happy – crisp moments of beauty with the combination of maps and painted imagery.”

Rachel couldn't imagine living anywhere besides her cozy home in Portland but that doesn't mean that, from time to time, she doesn't get a wandering eye. And rather than making a run for it, she expresses this wanderlust by creating beautifully painted illustrations, using old maps as the canvas. A technique involving multiple layers of paint helps to enhance each bold image, giving the map paintings a durable, waxy effect. The whimsical works are like a small vacation for your wall – at least, that's how Rachel feels as she's making each of 'em in her own little home studio.
