Martamaps project started during the National lockdown. I missed travelling or even just strolling around town, so I started to sketch the main landmarks of Falmouth, such as The Princess Pavilion, the Art Gallery and Gilly Beach. Designing a map of my town, helped my mental health as I could virtually escape during that challenging time. Later on, the map evolved into a family board game and I started designing other places I love in Cornwall.
My name is Marta, I am a Graphic Designer who has always lived by the sea. I was born in Sicily, studied in the Venice lagoon and moved to Cornwall in 2014 where fell in love with this place.
Martamaps project offers me the chance to explore, geographically and historically, this place that now I can call home.
