It’s finally here! The book has landed.
Anna Solo and I decided we would create a photography book about the seasonal workers (nicknamed Pelicans) of Star Island. I am extremely proud of what we put together with the help of illustrator, Elizabeth DeJure Wood, our editors — Matt and Chloe Kanner of PortsmouthNH.com, and the book designer — Matt Ralph of Plainspoke.
Join us for the
book release party on Tuesday, July 2nd from 6:30 PM to 9 PM at Brick & Barn Real Estate Group in the West End of Portsmouth, NH. Thank you to Cornerstone Artisanal Pizza and Craft Beer for donating pizza for our party!!! 🍕
A limited number of books will be available for sale at the release party. A portion of the proceeds of the sale of the book go to
Star Island Corp.

I wish I’d seen this
Anna Hepler show at the Portland Museum of Art back in 2010.
Love her work, her style, her process. So inspiring.
Especially love the Double Hung wire sculpture from this 2017 exhibition. Cheeky.
