I am excited to announce that I have commissioned a painting of Bouboulina, the heroine of the Greek Revolution, and subject of my dissertation and film, to be dedicated to the Bouboulina museum. The painting will feature Bouboulina and her 5th- generation grandson, Philip Demertzis-Bouboulis, who founded the museum in 1991.

Greek-Australian artist Efrossini Chaniotis will bring her to life- the first portrait of Bouboulina painted through the eyes of a woman! I won’t give too much away, but Effie is getting started and it’s going to be awesome! The big reveal will happen this summer at the Bouboulina museum, for the bicentennial celebration in Spétses, Greece.Screen Shot 2021-02-09 at 11.06.22 AM

I am also writing an article about Bouboulina for KPHTH magazine, the official publication of the Pancretan Association of America. The article will commemorate Bouboulina’s contributions to the Greek War of Independence, and will appear in the June/July 2021 issue.
