Hello and welcome to my site.
Following a diploma in fine art and design I was delighted to be accepted to train in iconography with the Prince’s School of Traditional Arts on their four-year diploma in icon painting & wall painting. This was part of their Liturgical Arts Programme where I had the privilege of being taught by the iconographer Aidan Hart. I am a member of The British Association of Iconographers and over the years I have been trained by a number of icon 'writers' in both the Greek and Russian traditions:

- Annie Shaw
- Sister Esther
- Father Iakobus from Mount Athos
- Aidan Hart
- Efrem Carrasco

I aspire for my icons to glorify God and to convey some of His beauty. I love working with natural materials and ‘writing’ both Byzantine icons and contemporary icons. In making the icons I use 23 to 24 carat gold leaf with traditional painting methods using egg tempera and natural pigments on gessoed wooden panels, canvass, vellum, and stone.
