This is a watercolor painting of one of my favorite places - Maui! "Maui no ka oi" means "Maui is the best" in Hawaiian. It includes 12 of the places I plan on visiting next month. A trip to Maui is not complete without a visit to Haleakala, 'Iao Valley, and Mama's Fish House! I love hiking, visiting national and state parks, and seeing the beautiful, unique beauty of Hawaii. I can't wait to snorkel and travel the road to Hana for the first time!
This place is special to me because there is something magical about Lititz, especially during the Christmas season. Even though it is my hometown, the time I spend downtown always feels special. Each shop, cafe, and restaurant is unique and has that hard-to-define small town feel. There is so much to learn about the town's history (founded in 1756 by Count Zinzendorf, a Moravian who named the town after a Bohemian castle). And there is nothing like standing beside friends and neighbors during Christmas in the Park -- singing carols together by candlelight, listening to local school children singing, and watching the Christmas tree light up. Lititz was voted "America's Coolest Small Town" (by Budget Travel magazine in 2013) for so many great reasons! Come visit! (The artwork on this map comes from the woodslice ornaments I paint for the Purple Robin Reserve shop, which sells artwork from over 140 local artists.)

This place is special to me because it is close to home, yet it is so completely different. It is like traveling a million miles away. There is so much beautiful nature. My family loves camping and exploring all around Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
This place is special to me because after living 40 years in Columbus Ohio, I moved to Seattle and fell in love. The mountains & the Sound made me smile every day & I met one of my best friends, Diana there. As an avid runner, I was thrilled about all of the scenic routes. Diana and I recently did a JustMe5K in the Wallingford neighborhood - complete with zombie running statues, alligators and amazing views of the city from Gas Works Park. Throw in a tasty breakfast sandwich at the end & that’s a perfect 3.1 miles. 🙌
This place is special to me because it’s charm and delicious food stole my heart. One of the first things I saw in Charleston was a happy family of dolphins swimming in the harbor, which is something I had never seen before. New experiences like the wildlife made me feel connected to this small city. As we looked over the menu at Fleet Landing I saw a heron outside who was also looking for its dinner. I wanted to make this map highlighting the food we had in Charleston because of the people behind the food who cared about what they cooked and the experience they provided. The restaurants and landmarks I illustrated are just some of the many great places Charleston has to offer.
This place is special to me because it's my secret winter escape. OK, maybe not so secret as thousands of snowbirds have discovered it as well. I love Tucson not only for the fun breweries, tasty eats, farmers markets, cool shops, and fascinating historical sights but the city is surrounded by nature. To the north you can hike at Catalina State Park and Sabino Canyon, to the east and west you'll find both sections of Saguaro National Park. When hiking you may be surprised to find the desert teems with life like hummingbirds, phainopeplas, hawks, roadrunners, ringtail cats and javelinas. The cactus wren pictured here is the state bird of Arizona. Hope you like my map! :) Come explore the desert!
Why shouldn’t dogs have their own map? This map of Roswell, GA depicts great locations for the above-average canine: two vets, two groomers, two shopping experiences, and two places to board. Does your canine live in a town as dog-friendly as Roswell?
This place is special to me because it's where I find all the ingredients for my favorite Armenian and Middle Eastern meals. It's where my kids go to school and learn our language, history and culture. It's where I teach, where I bump into friends, where I overhear old men discuss politics in Western Armenian, a language UNESCO has classified as endangered. It's where newspapers are edited, holidays are celebrated, weddings, baptisms, funerals are conducted. Little Armenia is just a few blocks in a small town, but it's my home away from home.
This place is special to me, since it's been my new home since a few years. Blueberries are are emblematic of the region, so they've been incorporated into the map.
