The World is Your Highway
The world is an open road inviting you to adventure in this altered map from artist Wendy Gold. She starts with a vintage map as her canvas, and uses decoupage and other media to make it a world of her own. Here, the striking white-on-black color scheme of the map make the continents appear to float in the darkness of space, and through this ethereal world winds a highway of bold colors. The print is made on heavyweight, 100% recycled stock canvas using water-based inks. It's the perfect piece of art for gardeners, nature lovers, or anyone with a deeply rooted romantic streak. Made in the USA.

- the maker
Wendy Gold is an artist inspired by unique and unusual canvases. She first gained notoriety when she began decoupaging one-of-a-kind toilet seats and bathroom scales. Her work was instantly recognized for its originality and she quickly garnered a clientele including many A-list celebrities, along with a who's who of retailers, restaurants, hotels, interior designers, and home decor enthusiasts.
Always looking for new inspiration, she stumbled across a beautiful antique globe at a flea market and immediately recognized her next canvas. In early 2010, she launched ImagineNations™ and brought her unique brand of design to the canvas of world globes. By using recycled materials and vintage globes, she creates beautiful works of art, and brings a new touch of earthly responsibility to her work.
Wendy has built upon her ImagineNations™ brand by offering a line of recycled, hand-signed and numbered lithographs featuring her designs interplaying with vintage world maps.
Wendy has been featured on CNN, NPR, Newsweek, USA Today, InStyle, Travel+Leisure, and hundreds of other local, national and international media outlets. She has also appeared on the TV show, "I've Got a Secret." When not in her Bay Area studio, Wendy enjoys doing art projects with her daughter, scouring local flea markets, drinking green smoothies, kick boxing, and putting her artistic touch to good use at home and wherever she goes. collection
