Latest Icon News
Welcome to my new Icon Blog about Christian Icons! I’m an American Iconographer with completed Icons in many Churches, Monasteries, and private collections.
My mission and passion is for Beauty to be made manifest in Icons and Art, bringing God’s Peace, Love and Wisdom to new generations.
In these blogs I will write about what Icons are. Since Icons are relatively scarce in our world today, I will talk about how they were defined and revered in the early centuries as well as how they are incorporated into today’s Church.
Religious Christian Icons Explained
When I use the term Christian Religious Icons to differentiate the sacred Icons from all the other kinds of “icons” out there it is because of the need to clarify terms.. There are cultural icons, computer icons, etc, and these are in a completely different category!
Christian Religious Icons
Modern Christian Icons have a spiritual depth and refreshing impact on worship and prayer today. Reviving the classical art of painting religious imagery is my mission. It is only now, after centuries of disregard, that religious Icons are now being understood in the non Orthodox denominations.
I will also include information about my upcoming classes and exhibitions over the next year so that those who want instruction may find it.
May God bless your day today in wonderful ways,
Christine Simoneau Hales
