Connie Brown had her revelation while standing on top of a mountain on a three-week trek in the Pyrenees. "That's where you're supposed to have a revelation," she says. "That's where I had it."

The brainstorm was this: she would capture the awesome vista in front of her not with a camera but with a huge canvas map painted herself. And she would make these maps for a living.
