About

The Word Became an Image

For most of my life I have been interested in art, and have dabbled in everything from murals to portraits, and from ceramics to precious metal clay. For most of my life I have been active in my faith, attending weekly mass, getting involved in various ministries. One day I found myself taking an icon class, very much by chance, but I now believe by design. I fell in love with iconography and sacred images. It consumed me. I wanted to learn as much as I could. After having worked in the outside world for over 30 years, I told my husband I just want to write (paint) icons everyday. I love the prayerful atmosphere, and the liberating feeling of trying to allow the Spirit to guide me. So with the encouragement of friends and family and most especially my husband, this is what I do. I take ten short steps up the stairs to my studio where I can paint and pray. The lingering smell of incense and Gregorian chants fill my studio. So now I feel like I've found what I should be doing. I've combined my interest in art with my Catholic Christian faith. My goal is simply to serve HIM, and touch as many lives as possible with my work.

I hope you enjoy my Etsy site. Please know that all images were painted in the traditional manner, whether following an ancient prototype, or being a completely original creation, or something in between. Research, prayer, and meditation are the building blocks from which all my work begins. If you feel moved to inquire about any of the images, as icons, prints, or cards, please feel free to contact me. If there is a paticular image you would like to have commissioned for your church or home please feel free to contact me. Also, it is my belief that every home should have an image of Christ and His Mother. If you would like one and are financially unable to commission one or purchase a print, please contact me and I will gladly send you a print for your home.

AMDG,
Vivian Imbruglia
