I live just by the South West Coast Path, which hugs around 660 miles of the English coastline, from the rocky cliffs of North Devon, through Cornwall and over to the gentle waters of Poole in East Dorset. At least once a week I walk this path. The Golden Cap is the highest point on the south coast of England and I have looked over to it as I walk the coastline near my home in Devon. I recently I climbed up and down the grass clad, golden cliffs of the Cap to the top. The sky was azure, hawks, and a helicopter circled below me and people on the beach were no bigger than grains of sand. The Golden Cap features in my illustration of Dorset, like a bright beacon, shining its light over the deep blue sea.
Underwater is MY HAPPY PLACE. Illustrated from a memory of one of my earliest scuba dives in Red Sea, Egypt. A school of long yellow fishies were curious and came to say hello, while all around colourful marine life played amongst the coral.
To me, Antarctica is the most special place on earth, because of its indescribable beauty and remote location. I can't find words to describe sitting down on the beach at Desolation Island and watching penguins come and go, so busy in their daily activities. The peace and serenity are matched only by the cool, clean air. Oh, I'm ready to go back now!
Hiking the Nevado de Toluca is an amazing day spent ... I live an hour away from here and every time I get the chance to spend a day here I cherish it. Even that time I got caught in an electrical storm (jaja). Anyway, if you are into hiking and around DF check it out!
A day spent hiking by a lake in Maine is where I am happiest. The sighting of wildlife and the Jordan Pond House popovers with blueberry tea on the lawn at the end of the day is the icing on my happy place cake.
The best places to go when you can't travel are the places inside books. This map follows the voyage of Captain Reed to a place that has never been accomplished before. It was believed that making it past the Western Edge was impossible, but Captain Reed proved everyone wrong. This was inspired by the book "The Reader" by Traci Chee. The first book in the series Sea of Ink and Gold.
Inspired by Jeanne Baret, a botanist who was the first woman to have completed a voyage of circumnavigation of the globe. She disguised as a man to be able to travel on the ship with her husband! During her trips she discovered the plant species Bougainvillea.
I have only visited Iceland once back in 2019 and honestly it was enough to know how much I would love this country. We visited Reykjavík and saw all the sights from the Hallgrimskirkja Church to the Blue Lagoon. I would definitely love to go back one day and explore the whole island. So this map represents how much beauty this country holds and the places I would love to visit one day.
Southwest desert hiking trail featuring common wildlife and plants. This is a local favorite - the bottom of the trail has a lot of people but as you climb higher you get the fantastic views all to yourself. It is state trust land and it is filled with creatures, if you are lucky enough to see them.
In the fall of 2019, I walked the Camino de Santiago from Ferrol to Santiago de Compostela (known as the Camino Ingles). Highlights included taking a detour and meeting up with friends in the Fragas Do Eume, walking before the sun rises, and making many cat friends along the way. Also just past Bruma, inexplicably, there's a dinosaur by the side of the road. It was a great experience and I would like to walk a longer pilgrimage one day.
