For nearly thirty years, Connie Brown has created hand-painted, illustrated thematic maps on canvas for individuals, non-profits, institutions, and companies. She’s mapped trips and treks, properties, genealogical migrations, biographies, campuses, historical districts, and environmental regions. Connie has been featured in numerous print and digital publications, from The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal to the design blog Boing Boing. Such exposure has brought her clients from all over the world and provided opportunities for community and global outreach. Recently, she has applied her cartographic skills to creating stewardship maps on behalf of wild species and wild spaces. Two years ago, she made a map about African elephants to benefit The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust; this summer, she completed a residency at Yellowstone, and is currently working on a map of the park.
