ABOUT

As the editor of CREATIVE MAINE magazine, I spend most days interviewing artists, artisans and designers, learning about their lives and their arts for each issue. Our conversations are wonderfully unfocused; we travel all around without boundaries … laughing, sympathizing, empathizing. We each learn a lot and at the end of the interview feel a refreshing sense of giving and receiving.

Much the same, our readers have given me their time and their opinions. They take the time to write very specific notes about the stories they like and the connections to their own lives, the recipes they like and (bear with me!) how one in particular got an asparagus-hating teenage boy to love it: He thought they were green beans, despite their little speared heads!

The relationships I have with our readers and with those creative Mainers who we feature have a great deal in common. I would like to pass this personal level of communication along to you via shopping.
