I love Chattanooga. I love the community, the continuous growth within the city, the numerous coffee shops around every corner, the ice cream scenes, the constant itch to get outside, the encouragement from local entrepreneurs and artists, the FOOD, the closeness from downtown to campus, the Walnut Street Bridge, the mountains, and the fact that you can’t walk anywhere without seeing about 10 dogs on your commute. This city inspires me so, so much. It was the inspiration behind my watercolor map of Chattanooga. It took me so long (about 5 months) to create this painting mainly because I just couldn’t decide what to include! I finally narrowed it down to 6 things: some Chattanooga is known for, some only Chattanoogans would understand, and some that are just special to me.

If you’re in the Chattanooga area, pop into Locals Only to buy this map! Coming very soon to other shops!
