A Series of Original Abstract Maps
Map Your Dreams And Go
Our “homing beacon” is often strongest when we are lost. This abstract map collection explores allowing your mind to get lost - asking questions about your life and all the things you wish for the most.
Once you realize what's pulling you, you can map out your path and go. :)
These maps are a guide to your own adventure, freedom and self-empowerment.
Pieces from this series are all hand-dyed and can be found in collections from the tropical island of Maui to NYC.
These maps are fictional. They tell a story. Mel calls this abstract cartography.
The 100% cotton, archival quality canvas is hand-dyed using Mel's custom River Painting Dye Method.
The dyeing process takes multiple layers, heat, different color mixtures and ink to attain the final result.
The shorelines and islands must be carefully drawn on by hand to create the final map.
