maps of Grand Rapids and Michigan State
I made this piece for my daughter who lives in Colorado. She's going to hang it in her office. I embedded maps of places she's lived into the piece. It was fun to make something so personal ofr her. I resisted the impulse to put baby pictures into it too!

You are onto something by incorporating maps into your collages! I foresee crazy success via custom-made pieces. This is brilliant, Virginia!

I did a big commission piece like this during the winter and it was very well received! Very fun to do. I layer tissue on top of the maps to obscure them a little bit.
