The "Not To Scale - Mapping Memories in Colour" collection represents the first 12 of 29 locations that Peta has lived. Each piece is a map showing the road and position of the house. The black background is representative of Aphantasia, a condition that Peta has, that means she is unable to visualise.

The shape to the right depicts the fifth house Peta lived in. Her Dad acquired a new piggery job that provided a house, which prompted this move. The property was near a forest and a river. This is where Peta had her first pet cat “Buffy”. The family did some travelling in their white panel van and the green racing stripe is shown on the house wall. The trees have been painted in the same style as what Peta created on a sales plan in the 00’s and the road section to the left depicts a river with adjacent land parcels as shown on a Survey Index Plan. Colours were originally inspired by a photo of Peta on a go-kart but altered slightly on the final piece. The canvas is oriented with North at the top and stencilled on the side is the exact location of the house in the form of latitude and longitude coordinates.
