NEW! Since all of my in person Icon Classes have been cancelled until further notice, I am offering for the first time, an online Icon
Holy Icons originated in the very early centuries of Christianity, hundreds of years before the great schism that separated the Eastern Church from the Western Church. Today, new Christian icons are being painted by Orthodox, Catholics, and Protestants. Most importantly, they are being understood as windows into eternity for a young generation of Christians.

This Christ Pantocrator Icon was commissioned for the Elizabeth Ann Seton School in Washington State as a memorial to the passing of a loved one.
This Icon is painted to be the front of a tabernacle on the altar of the school chapel. The reverse side is double gilded gold leaf.
God’s love can sometimes be apprehended through an Icon more easily than a book, or sermon. Our culture is desperately in need of God’s love, and since images speak directly to our hearts, icons speak to many people. In addition to the joy we have in writing the Icon, we can share it with many, many people. Writing icons can be an act of service, giving and sharing the talents we have been blessed with. Icons speak to us today using the images, symbols and spiritual foundations of the Christian Church.
