Maria Stoian Comics+Illustration

Everything you need to know

Hello, there! I’m Maria – I’m an illustrator and comics artist based in Edinburgh. I studied illustration at the Alberta College of Art + Design (BDes) and then at Edinburgh College of Art (MA). I care about feminism, the state of the world, and making things look nice. I regularly contribute non-fiction comics for The Nib. These days I’m also collaborating on ceramic pieces with artist Natalie J Wood

I’m available for work/commissions/workshops/chats: say hello!
