About

Why does she create these maps?

The first Hand Cut Map was created as part of her 5th year architecture thesis. A more beautiful, non-typical, site map. A map layered with more information than any other. Since then, she quietly worked on these beauties for her own enjoyment. In October of 2009, she listed the nyc mapcut (an 8 ft. x 10 ft. hand cut map) on Etsy, in hopes of earning a few dollars. The images of the delicate streets of New York got circulated throughout the online design community and a business was unintentionally created. She makes the most beautiful hand cut maps, you'll ever see. Her modern maps are more than a navigational tool, they are collected and treasured by many for the memories and stories they tell. They become heirlooms. What places tell your life story?

Where can I find her work?
