About

My icons are drawn and painted completely freehand on the icon. So each is a hand-drawn and hand-painted original. My prices are reasonable for work of such intricate detail. I list ready to buy icons. Commissions start at only $125, and I will try to work within a family's budget, so please inquire at kkicons on the gmail browser or contact me through Etsy here.. There is a 20% discount for ordering a set of icons of two or more. On the sets, it is fine to order one at a time. My minimum turnaround is currently 3 months, so order early for your event, and I will keep in touch by email to let you know of the progress. Larger, more complex items or sets will take longer. My Etsy prices include the Etsy markup fees and also free shipping.

My work is so striking and unique, it would make a good commercial illustration for a book, magazine, not-for-profit, church, or website. If interested, please convo me, and we will work out a listing for you. I always retain the copyright for all my work. Please see the store policies for more details.

::ABOUT ME--
I am an Orthodox iconographer whose home parish is St. Jonah of Manchuria Russian Orthodox Church of Spring, TX. My priest is Father John Whiteford. I have been making icons since 1996. Although I have a BFA from UNT in watercolor, I am largely self -taught in iconography. I am a practicing Orthodox Christian and my icons are composed within the Orthodox liturgical tradition. I use the ancient icons as models for my drawing.

I live on a farm in Southeast TX, and love animals and the Saints who have animals in their icons. I am interested in little known Western Saints and newer, locally venerated Saints. I enjoy being one of the first people to make an icon of a saint.

::BENEFITS--
Let me work with you to create the right icon for your home or parish. Icons help bring you closer to God. A blessed icon can be an avenue of grace for your family, and no price can be placed on the value of this benefit. Your prayers joined to the prayers of the Saints and especially to those of the Mother of God, through their icons, can bless your home and family, your work, and parish.

FREE US shipping. FREE animal(s) in icons of Saints normally depicted with animals. Please Convo me with International orders and I will make you a special listing with actual shipping included. All duties and taxes are the buyer's responsibility. (Please see store policies for more details.)
