Georgia born and raised, Jamie Manangan moved to Atlanta in 2001 with her husband, Arie, (the other half of Map of Home). She began working in the field of wildlife biology, which often involved creating scientific maps. Map of Home began in 2015 as a way to merge artistic expression with map designs based on actual data. As a cartographer, she uses map and art software and techniques based on 20 years of experience to create original map art.
Jamie enjoys creating unique pieces that give people a new perspective on the world around them. It could be in the form of a clean-lined modern map offering a bird’s-eye view of a neighborhood, or a visualization using fresh colors to display the beautiful features of our natural world, such as waterways or geology.
