You may have seen the brightly colored signs around town reminding everyone to wash their hands and wear a mask during the COVID-19 pandemic. The signs were designed by Maria Nicolai, a self-taught artist who grew-up in Bethel and Kwethluk and uses drawing as a way to communicate and tell stories. KYUK's Katie Basile talked with Nicolai during her lunch break at Wells Fargo, where she is a lead bank teller.
