To anyone in the market for an artful and accurate custom map I recommend Lisa Middleton/ Great River Arts.
I originally bought a map Lisa did of the Mississippi River, and loved the detail, quality and colors. The owner of the shop where I had it framed was familiar with Lisa/ Great River Arts, and from her I learned of Lisa’s website, and that she did custom work.

I thought a custom map by Lisa would be a perfect birthday gift for my son-in-law, who loves hunting and fishing, particularly on the Rainy River. When I contacted Lisa she was very accommodating, even though it was a busy time of year for her. Throughout the process of creating the map Lisa was in contact with me about the area to cover, and specific towns and features I wanted to include to personalize the map for us.

The finished product is beautifully done, and made such a special, personal gift. Of course my son-in-law and daughter are delighted with it. They have it hanging in a place of honor in the game/TV room of their new home.

I found Lisa very accommodating and easy to work with and would recommend her without reservation.

Your check is in the mail for payment of my last order, and I would like to order 12 more of The Father of Waters.  I am currently sold out! I didn’t even have them in my store for a week! YAY

Hi, just checkin in..full out on everything 🙂

thanks!

I wanted to make sure we got some on order, down to almost gone. : )

Great news!  Our maps arrived today in perfect shape.  Many thanks for your careful packaging and prompt delivery. I’ll be sure to let you know what our recipients of these wonderful maps have to say about them.

My husband is redoing his office & has loved maps since he was a kid. I bought your Colorado River Ribbon Print on Amazon (we’re in Colorado Springs) & had it framed to surprise him this weekend when we tackle that job.

All the other maps on this order will be gifts for great friends.

Thank you Lisa! They are a hit!
Thank you again, your work is beautiful!

“I’ve had a great response from my customers! And may have already sold over half of my order! May I order 12 more? Thank you! Thank you!”
I really appreciate the connection you make between art and map making.  I share your enthusiasm for historic maps and the remarkable perceptions and observations early explorers made in regions we have spent our lives in.

Thank you Lisa. You’ve been go great to deal with.  I really appreciate all the work you put into making the map of the Rainy River and the US / Canada border.
