Blessed with both an impressive imagination and artistic skill, Nikki Rosato creates incredible people portraits...all made from maps! Her reason for choosing road maps as her medium? “Our physical bodies are beautiful structures full of detail, and they hold the stories that haunt and mold our lives," she says. "The lines on a road map are beautifully similar to the lines that cover the surface of the human body.”

I've never seen maps used like this before!

When in a bad mood, I say if France map was a body, I'm sure I'd live in the bottom side of it
