As you know we presented Mayre with the Map of the Flathead Valley that you so kindly produced for us. Mayre was overwhelmed with joy in receiving the map and has since written to me that it hangs in her house and she enjoys looking at it each day. Citizens has been the protector of the Flathead Valley for over 25 years and the Map has a significant meaning to her as founder.
The Board was so pleased with the final map and it gave us great joy in presenting it. We had over 100 people who came to celebrate and most of them came up to the Map and remarked on locations, the painting and the places they love so much in the Flathead. You chose wonderful depictions of locations and activities to signify the Valley.
Lisa, when I approached you about purchasing a map and found you had not completed one of the Flathead Valley I was thankful you agreed to make it happen. Working with you was a charm and so easy. You had a very tight framework and each deadline was met including helping me find a framer to complete the work.
The entire experience was a dream and one I want to thank you for from all of us.
I have since purchased maps of Glacier Park and are giving them as Christmas presents.
Once again, thank you and I look forward to seeing more of your work in the future.

“Throughout the years I have worked with many artist and not many of them get it as they like to create and not duplicate and not willing to change their work to make it sellable. You have broken that mold and are very responsive and understand our customer’s needs when it comes to their local area. I carried one of the paper maps you sent me so my stores get an impression of your work as well as showed them images on a screen that we were working on. They liked the look and two stores that ordered from these images have already re-ordered.” Chuck Ellenwood, Fish Box, Inc
We are baby step kind of Reps just putting one foot in front of the other and looking forward to walking this trail together with you.
I was wanting some unique artwork for my walls and wasn’t impressed with the generic options at the store. I love old maps, so was searching around on Etsy for something relating to the region I live in (NW Wisconsin) when I discovered yours. I work in digital property mapping now, but sometimes wish there was still a demand for real cartographers and hand drawn maps with real artistic quality. Old maps are fascinating to me, to see how a landscape was interpreted back then without ever being able to have a birds eye view. You really bring your maps to life! And I love the bit of history you have on most!
Everyone who contributed $100 got your map and there were A LOT in that amount!
Lisa, your maps are so beautiful! Thank you! It was the perfect way to end the live auction and special appeal!
The [Danube] map blew everyone away. We unveiled it the final night and have received many thank you notes once received at home. You should be very proud of what you created. I know it was a challenge when I contacted you and I personally cannot thank you enough for solving my challenge. The captains of the ships loved the prints so much, I gifted the framed samples to them at the end of the trip. They were very touched by your work!
I met Lisa for the first time at the Great Western Living and Design Show in Great Falls during the Charlie Russel weekend. I was walking by and I noticed her maps and I have always loved maps and use them in my work. When I saw Lisa’s maps I thought they were very exciting and very antique but very modern at the same time. I immediately wanted to use them in my style of work. After talking to Lisa I realized how special the maps were. Whoever purchases one of Lisa’s maps is getting a masterpiece by a modern day master of map making!

Lisa does amazing work. Beautiful original piece that I have already had matted and framed. It looks beautiful! I would highly recommend her and her artwork!
