Hey, I'm Maria!

Boston, Massachusetts

Maria Servellón is a multimedia artist, filmmaker, educator, and arts advocate from Boston, MA. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art and Japanese from UMass Boston in 2012. For over 5 years, Maria has taught multimedia to students and educators alike with an interactive hands-on, minds-on approach in the Boston, Cambridge, and Lynn public schools.

Her focus is film and photography, frequently dabbling in digital art, drawing, installation, animation, painting, and design. A recurring theme in her work is the exploration of relations between art, music, and dance in a synaesthetic-like approach. Along with art, she enjoys singing, dancing, acting, modeling, martial arts, and traveling. In 2018, Maria received her Master of Fine Arts degree in Film and Media Art at Emerson College. Her latest film, Hyphen, is Maria's thesis film for the completion of her MFA degree at Emerson College.
