Maria Photinakis

I am a painter, illustrator, and comics artist living and working in Waltham. This year most of my work has been memoir-focused as I reflected on this pandemic in a comics series I’ve been working on called “Extraordinary Times.” I’ve been making updates to it regularly since early March and have completed over 200 pages of this project thus far. 

Memoir work is often a focus of what I do, but climate change and human displacement, with both hope and trepidation for the future, tend to be my focus in my illustrated and more abstract painted works.
