Last week at Barn Arts in Bass Harbor, Maine, was absolutely magical. I got to meet incredible new artists, including Andrew Simon and Brittany Parker and fellow Hamilton Residents Clare Cook, Mary Rose GoBlake Horn, Keurim Hur, Alexis IngramJulia IzumiAnna Lublina, Jake Simonds, and Kristi Stout.

I also got to put in so much time working on my upcoming project It's in the Bag, which looks at women+ who have run for President of the United States throughout the country's history.

AND, I got to talk to lots of people about one of those women in particular--Margaret Chase Smith--who was a Representative and Senator from Maine. It was so inspiring to hear Maine locals--including current Maine Senator Susan Collins--talk about how much Margaret Chase Smith means to them.

One of my fellow residents, Jake, interviewed me for his podcast, "likenobodyslistening." Check it out here to hear more about It's in the Bag and my process for making it.

The summer has been extraordinary so far, and there are still big things to come. Stay tuned!
