Designed and printed in Portland, Oregon by Final Switchback.
After earning a degree in illustration, Katie Reim, founder of Final Switchback, bounced around between many mediums and crafts. Her intense love for wilderness and painting naturally pulled her towards this latest body of work. Katie starts each painting by letting the contours of a map lead her towards a composition. She alters the colors of the map to fit the mood of the place, then paints on top with acrylic and finishes the details with meticulous pen and ink. The contour lines are like fingerprints for nature. Each place and what you experience each time you go is unique. Katie aims to capture the connection people feel towards their favorite wild places.
