Announcement   Original hand painted orthodox icons made in the traditional techniques and created with great attention to detail and authenticity.
In the Byzantine era icons were considered precious gifts, because the people believed that they bring luck and health to the home in which they entered. The tradition continued in the countries with orthodox religion and lasts till today due to the strong belief, and, mostly because they are considered as work of art.
The orthodox icons are known for its precision and distinct style, which is pre-defined by certain canons. However I try to add my own touch of creativity when painting them. I like them to be looked at not only as religious objects but also as piece of art suitable for every home decor.
------------------------------------------------------
I gladly accept custom orders as well! If you want to commission an icon you don't see in my shop or if you prefer smaller/larger size than the ones available, please feel free to contact me!
------------------------------------------------------
Feel free to request a print of any icon you see in my shop and I will gladly make one for you, mounted on wood (or if you prefer not)
------------------------------------------------------
All icons marked "Made to order" take 7-15 days to complete, all other icons are ready to ship immediately

This icon turned out even more beautiful than I could have hoped. It was the perfect gift for my friend being ordained a priest. And I am so grateful to Agnessa for getting this icon ready so quickly and perfectly. I will definitely turn to her again when shopping for icons. Every Blessing!

Beautiful, careful and tender execution, humble artistry, spiritually engaging work of art! Agnessa, I received the icon today, and I must admit that when I set my eye on it in person it made me slow down for quite a long time and admire it carefully. All the details I suggested and which you neatly included in the composition speak for themselves. Perfect mixture of "personal" and "traditional", of "static" and "moving". I am so glad to own such a beautiful "window" to God's mistery of your craft. God bless your art and your life!

About

Iconsart is a place for original hand painted orthodox icons made in the traditional techniques and created with great attention to detail and love

I have been painting orthodox style icons for over 27 years now and take great care to create icons that are beautifully made and lasting for the generations to come. What once started as a creative outlet turned into passion and as time passed by I found myself devoting more and more time to the unique art of icon painting. Over the years I have not only followed the traditional techniques of painting an icon but also developed my own techniques in order to make my icons one-of-a-kind pieces of art.
I am a self- taught artist, 57 years old, (Veterinarian by occupation) and have my works collected in many countries around the world. I have also participated in a number of local and international exhibitions and fairs together with professional artists.
Feel free to send me a message if you have any question or custom icon request.
