About

Encapsulating the stories, significant locations, and noteworthy events of people's lives through map and paper art

Hello there. Thanks for checking out my shop! I am an artist-wife-mother that hails from Minnesota and transplanted to the great city of Chicago.

Before the adventures of child-rearing, I was an elementary art teacher and I loved it. While I treasure being home with my kids now, I have often found myself indulging in a variety of artistic outlets from wedding decor to cake decorating.

In December of 2015, a couple dear friends invited me to share a table with them at a craft show. After drawing, painting, and printing a few Chicago-themed prints, I set up my Etsy shop and jumped on board. The craft show was exhilarating and Etsy pulled me in.

That Christmas, paired with the thrill of the craft show, an art endeavor helped me find my niche. For the past few years, my cousins and siblings have started hand-making Christmas presents for each other. I gathered some maps significant to my sister's life, cut a variety of custom images from them, and mounted them on wood. After completing six small pieces for her, I didn't want to stop. In late February of 2016, I listed the start of my map cuts on wood and haven't looked back.

When our children are tucked into bed, the tools and supplies emerge and I often get carried away... staying up far too late. I look forward to exploring new possibilities and avenues to share with the Etsy community.

It is enjoyable to me to tinker with various mediums and processes, so please drop me a note if you are exploring some custom work.

Until next time...
Krista
