 We shall not deny you, beloved Orthodoxy

nor shall we lie to you, time-honored reverence,

We were born in you, we live in you,

and we shall die in you. And if time shall call us

we shall sacrifice a thousand time our lives for you!

Spiritual Father of St. Mark of Ephesus, +1435 

The icons have their own language and speak in silence, we just have to gaze at an icon till the icon which is a guiding image reveals to us its spiritual power and enrich  our life with the real meaning  .

  The Holy Art of Iconography is my soul deposition, Theology, belief, communion and according to the Holy fathers  Byzantine iconography

is a revelation of the Holy Spirit in the world!  It is the mirror that reflects the power of Christianity and Orthodoxy and is the miracle exactly there ... where real faith still stands.      

Welcome to my website ! Here you can learn how great , mysterious, symbolic and powerful  is the Holy Art of

Byzantine Iconography and also I want to show you

some of my icons!


 I  have found a special way to express myself and I

ampassionate depicting  icons using strict Byzantine prototypes in study assimilating this analysis into my

iconography rendering a modern Byzantine rendition 

of the icon with exceptional beauty and personal artistic style.


 I believe that  my  iconography  is  a gift and for
this

reason my icons  should  have a soul and be alive  a

 kind of  messenger between Heaven and Earth.  A

dynamic spiritual masterpiece  and a window to 

Eternity that makes the observers visually praying.


 I invite you to another world ! Where the Byzantine

icon's shining beauty and deeper meaning may inspire

you ! Come with me...
