The story behind my world maps:

I have lived in 3 different continents and studied design and art in all 3 and the result of that is that I have people spread across the globe who I have made wonderful connections with.

I guess it is the yearning to meet them and missing them that led me to explore world maps. I would teach my son where `Nana' lives, or where Suzanne Aunty is, or where I went to school. And suddenly a story would emerge and we would talk about it for days. And that is where the idea of interactive maps came to me.

For me, it is not about marking a place, but marking your memories. It is about putting a pin on your life and re-living it every time you see it. It is the adventurer in all of us that makes these maps so attractive. And to be able to add your names/quotes/dates makes it that much more special.

Hope you will take this journey with me.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please be aware that I only ship mostly via USPS First Class (it is the most economical) and I do NOT get tracking most of the time because it is very expensive. I can get tracking for you if you ask and the extra expense has to be paid by the buyer. Also, please be aware that all custom duties imposed by your Government is your responsibility. Delivery time too increases and orders take a little longer to reach. Please keep this in mind before ordering. Thank you!

Also, ALL HI and AK (ALASKA) buyers, although you are charged the regular USA shipping rates, I will get int ouch with you about possible higher shipping rates after the order and before shipping. We cannot differentiate the rates here on Etsy, but it is always higher to send to outside islands. Thank you for understanding.

Thank you so much for stopping by. :)

IMPORTANT: It has come to my attention that some sellers are trying to copy my work and hire help from outside to do as well. I literally saw screen shots of my maps in some freelance sites. Please NOTE: Etsy has my back, because my work IS copyright protected and original. AND I have also enlisted the help of a law firm...Khaitan & Co. Solicitors to enforce ANY infringement on my artwork. Please consider this seriously. I have worked way too hard for my maps and will not tolerate any copying.

IMPORTANT: If I have spent time creating your proofs (1-2 rounds) and if you then cancel your order or after several attempts I don't hear from the buyer I will refund 50% of the order to compensate for my time spent in making the proofs.
