I am a geographer and have long been fascinated by maps. More recently, I used these as inspirations for different kinds of paintings.
It is interesting to see them all together like this, as I can see that the possibilities are endless. Faithfulness to the map itself, then colour and line are what end up to create the shapes. I love doing them as it takes me back to places I know well - I like walking down the steets again, or going over a bridge, or visiting an art gallery!
