Smell and taste the World
One of the great things about creating and painting maps is the research that is involved, allowing yourself to travel a neighbourhood, a city or a country, discovering the best bits without having to suffer airport security or even leaving your desk. I can imagine not just the way a place looks, but also the the weather, the foods, the tastes and smells, while also listening to the languages. Working with Plan South America an award winning luxury travel company specialising in South and Latin America has allowed me to do just that throughout countries such as Brazil, Peru, Columbia and lately Costa Rica. The maps have been used on the company website and literature while also being used as print gifts for clients who have experience the taste and smells first hand.
