Take a Peak

If mountains make your heart beat faster even when you're not hiking them, Katie Reim's detailed yet dreamlike portraits of some of America's grandest peaks will set it a-flutter. Katie, a talented illustrator and devout mountain lover, was inspired by the topographical maps she uses to navigate her long, ultramarathon runs through the hills. "Their contours are like fingerprints of nature," she says. She lets the maps' unique patterns guide each piece's composition, altering their colors to fit the mood of the place. Then, with pen and ink, she creates the intricate details. (Note: These are high quality prints of her originals.) The result is an artwork with vibrant layers of meaning that speak not only to the eyes, but to the heart. Made in Portland, Oregon.

Katie Reim is an illustrator, painter, and ultramarathon trail runner. In 2014, she left everything behind in Philadelphia and moved to Portland, Oregon to be closer to the mountains. “As I explored new terrain, often alone in the wilderness, I became fascinated by the patterns made with lines on the topographic trail maps,” she says. These maps and time spent outdoors serve as inspiration for her artwork. As she thinks about her future, Katie says she’s “excited to explore many more places on foot and on paper.”
