Chellie Pingree, U.S. representative for Maine's 1st district

"At first glance, Julia’s drawing gives us the glimpse of a typical teenager with her face apathetically laying on a tabletop, but in looking closer this face shows us the depth of human feeling and emotion expertly drawn with delicate detail and impressive skill."
