I began studying under Vladislav Andrejev and his son, Dmitri, with the Prosopon School of Iconology in 2008. These icons are written using the ancient method of egg tempera and using real gold. I was blessed by the Metropolitan of All America and Canada of the Orthodox Church in America to be an iconographer. I have also painted several icons on canvas that are then applied to walls.
