Maine and Maine-connected artists read interviews and create portraits
from photographs chosen by the storytellers.
Lizzy Schule is a painter on Martha’s Vineyard with ties to the Penobscot area through her family. She is a part-time art teacher and full-time English as a Second Language teacher instructing Brazilian immigrants, who are mostly undocumented workers. She hopes that this project will jump-start more community-based efforts to keep people out of jail.
Portrait artist Teresa Lagrange is the current art director of Islandport Press, a small book publisher in Yarmouth. She enjoys traditional and digital art and hopes to see the Storytelling Project educate people on the value of all life.
