OUR STORY


Hi, I'm Jennifer Carland, the artist at Carland Cartography. I finished my MFA right as the economy crashed, so I went back to school to study Urban Planning. My planning classes fueled my imagination and I began to draw the neighborhoods I was familiar with. It felt natural to combine my training as an artist with my interest in the built environment.

Carland Cartography was launched back in 2012 with the help of my partner, Remo. He is a photographer who works in marketing and has helped tremendously in the promotion and growth of Carland Cartography.

Initially started as an Etsy shop,  Carland Cartography was launched when I started drawing local neighborhoods out of my small Boston apartment.

Over the past few years, I have continued to develop my work by creating artwork illustrating several other cities.  My work has been shown in several exhibitions and festivals around New England, including ArtBeat, SoWA, NEOM, and stART on the Street

My work has grown with me as life has changed. When I first started drawing my Boston Neighborhoods Series, I didn't anticipate continue working in this subject matter. But, the more I made the more I wanted to make. Through exhibiting around New England, I was introduced to a few art consultants who have helped me place my work in several corporate settings - in NYC, Chicago, and a few other locations. In addition, I have licensed my work to Netflix for the use in two original series - Friends From College and Wonderland. 

In 2015, I moved into the Western Avenue Studios, located in Lowell MA, about 30 miles Northwest of Boston. I participated in several local events and had a solo exhibition in the unchARTed Gallery as well as a pop-up shop in Mill NO 5. 

In 2018, we expanded our reach from New England to the Midwest. I am in the early stages of developing a new series of Chicago neighborhoods. Look for that series to be released later this year. If you are interested in meeting me at an in-person event, click over to my blog to see what is happening.

 

 

ARTIST STATEMENT


I create fine art prints of abstracted street maps. The artwork illustrates local neighborhoods as well as broad city views of various places in the world. I believe maps hold "invisible" information- they contain stories and memories that were created by the people who lived and visited there. 

 

 

My goal is to make illustrated reminders of the places people identify with- such as the town they lived in as a child, or the place where they got married.   Everyone loves to talk about where live, where they have visited, and where they want to go next. Location is what binds our experiences together - our own experience as we travel from one place to the next, and our collective experience, as we share the physical world with one another. 

Our prints can be tangible reminders of the locations that make your life story special.

Verified Archival Materials Used

The Art Storefronts Organization has verified that this Art Seller has published information about the archival materials used to create their products in an effort to provide transparency to buyers.

Description from Merchant:

Each one of our pieces is created by developing a series of hand-drawn layers, with its own intended purpose for the whole. Each layer is a sketch, painting or drawing that is made independently, using various artistic mediums in a way that makes it compliment the other layers. These layers are then digitally combined to make a single final piece. The final piece is then produced as a high-quality print on paper or canvas.
