My icons are created with the finest archival modern materials. I work within the traditional framework of Orthodox iconographic canon, and Orthodox church attendance, prayer and fasting. These icons are fresh in style, but wholly functional as aids to prayer within the Orthodox tradition. I encourage each customer to get their icons blessed by a local Orthodox priest, so that they can get the full benefit of the grace and help in their prayer life icons can bring to their homes.

Order an icon with one figure, or Theotokos and Christ Child icon. I offer a FREE Animal painted with Saint-- for saints that traditionally can be painted with an animal. A saint on horseback with a background can be done at this price level.

This is a custom icon commission. The ones pictured here are examples of simple icons with no added complexity charge. We can discuss your desired subject and colors, style, etc, and I will work with you on getting you an icon you will treasure.

STYLE-- My icons are traditionally drawn, and modeled after ancient icons where possible. The strongly linear style has beautiful, eloquent expression of line. Often I draw directly with a pen for the strongest, most direct expression. They are painted in a rather translucent style, often with watercolor effects in the background. I use bright colors, such as the ones in the original icons before they darkened with age. Bright colors are often balanced against more muted or neutral colors.

The ones pictured are icons I have already made to order and sold. These are examples of icons for this price. We can discuss your desired subject, etc., and I will work with you on getting you an icon you will treasure. A larger room, chapel, or church may require a larger icon-- just ask and I will post a special listing and pricing for you.

These make great PERSONALIZED gifts for loved ones or for your parish! Most people have a special saint that matches their name. Many Orthodox people celebrate their Saints' Name days instead of birthdays. Some Orthodox choose a special saint for their family, and have a big party on that day. They have icons made for them of their Names' Saints. Gradually through living with icons of their saints, people find they feel closer to them. In gratitude for the blessings they receive, they want to give back to their church by donating a large icon.


SHIPPING-- FREE in USA. I use priority mail.

This icon takes up to 4 months to make, so be sure to order now for your event. Added complexity also adds more time. Alternatively, commission these for free, then pay for them when they are ready. To do this, contact me here at Etsy or at kkicons on the gmail browser.
