MEET SOME OF OUR CREATIVE WOMEN
Hello! My name is Shelagh Harvard. In 2016 I quit my life and embarked on an adventure, wandering around the US for a year, living out of my car and finding myself after several tumultuous years. Now that I'm back home in Maine, I'm seeking balance and looking for smaller adventures as I integrate back into daily life, living with friends and working in a gluten-free bakery, still with my camera by my side. You can always find me pondering life at tracingtheedge.com or on Instagram @tracingtheedge.

Graphic & Web Designer, Photo Assistant
Megan has been working as a freelance designer for almost three years. After studying design and psychology at College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor for two years, she was diagnosed with Chronic Lyme disease and decided to return home to focus on her health. The time she has spent healing has taught her a lot about herself as an artist and (though it sounds cheesy) as a person. Megan works with a variety of small business owners to create expressive visual identities that match their aesthetic and elevate their perceived level of professionalism. She is an artist first and foremost, and uses her knowledge of color theory, typography, and grid layout to design elements that are functional and attractive.
Megan lives and works in Portland and is always looking for new projects and challenges. She had the pleasure of working with Nanette to redesign her logo and design and build this website. Megan's online portfolio can be found at www.megannowak.com.
