Sherpa Ant

Mountain Inspired Illustration

In: Lifestyle >

We help outdoor enthusiasts pursue and share their passions while giving back to the people and places we love. Sherpa Ant makes illustrated art, shirts, cards and more for people who love mountains and hiking.

I grew up hiking in the White Mountains, not only peak-bagging but discovering the less traveled trails. When I returned home after completing my thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in 2013, I had a vision for an art print that not only looked beautiful on the wall but helped me discover new trails. As a constant list maker, I also wanted this map to include the trails I had already hiked. After many sketches, the "Color In Hiking Trail Map" was completed.

I put everything on hold for 6 months while my husband and I hiked the Pacific Crest Trail in 2016. When I got home, inspiration to merge art and outdoor activity together was overflowing and Sherpa Ant was created.
