CUSTOM Painted Map of Your Favorite Lake, Bay, or Island, original Watercolor Painting, 9x12 or 11x14 in.


Hand-painted in lightfast watercolor, each map is a one-of-a-kind artwork that charts your childhood vacation spot, hometown, or dream getaway. Calligraphy in india ink marks major roads, neighborhoods, even good fishing spots or the cabin you rented, whatever you specify to me in your notes to personalize it.

Maps are painted on heavyweight 9x12" or 11x14" watercolor paper and shipped to you flat in a plastic sleeve so you can slip the art into a matted frame of your choosing. Plan on 3-5 days turnaround on most maps. Priority USPS shipping.

*(Need a larger one? See our "Grand Scale" Custom Map, link below.)

In the comments section during ordering, please note the body of water, town and state, (country if necessary) and any other titles or notations you want made on the map in calligraphy. If you have a preference for a horizontal or vertical layout, tell me that too. Be as specific as possible with placement, otherwise please accept the artist's discretion. In general, if you can find it accurately on Google Maps, we are good to go. : )

Is it a gift? We can add a personalized note from you, written in calligraphy on a 100% cotton notecard with a lined envelope, wrap it and ship to your destination-- cheaper, and faster! Just write "ship as gift" in the comments section of this purchase, and add the "Ship as Gift" item from Jocelyn's Inkwell shop (link below) in the same cart. (change the shipping address and include the contents of the note in the Comments section.)


Cancellation on any custom order must be made within 72 hours. Depending on hours invested, there may be a fee retained before a refund can be made on any cancellation. Fee at the fair discretion of the artist. Sales tax will be assessed on any orders placed within Indiana.

Shipping from United States

Custom items generally take seven days to produce and ship; artwork in hand will ship within 48 hours, unless noted otherwise. All items ship through the USPS. Please notify us immediately upon ordering whether there is an event deadline, insurance, or overnight delivery requested; we'll be happy to help.


In general, there are no refunds on artwork based on anything beyond shipping damage. Irregularities, perceived pencil marks, or color adjustments between sunlight, incandescent light and computer screen color are inherent in artwork. Rejoice in the surprises life gives you. Additionally, the shop cannot make refunds based on the inability to read the buyer's mind; buyers should be as specific as possible at the time of the order. Feel free to contact the shop should a misspelling or other issue arise.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Jocelyn is quite the artist and the map of the Bahamas is better than I imagined. The layout and colors are perfect. If you’re thinking of the “perfect gift” for someone or for yourself, let Jocelyn create it for you. You won’t be disappointed!

The watercolor is BEAUTIFUL! It will go perfectly with the one Jocelyn did for us years ago (of a different lake). Thank you so much!

These custom maps are wonderful! Jocelyn did a fantastic job bringing my vision to life!

Words can’t describe how much I love the painting! It was exactly as I hoped it would be. I can’t wait to give it to my parents for Christmas! Such a talent, thank you! :)
