Visual Artist, Cartographer; Lowe Mill
I have been creating hand-drawn plausible fictitious maps since the age of five. My maps can depict a single feature (such as rail lines) a town, region, whole countries, entire continents or complex graphics detailing an entire landscape down to individual buildings. The maps are created on paper, canvas, board, wood and even skin. I also create complex and very personal commissioned pieces that include significant places, events and people form the client’s life.
