I have been in the art world all my life, it seems.  I have a Bachelor’s degree in applied art (mostly painting), and a Master’s in art history and spent 25 years studying and working in three dimensions as a potter and sculptor.  Recently I have  found that through iconography I can combine my love of painting with my lifelong devotion to the Christian faith, and with my love of meditation.  Icons can be in paint, mosaic, stone, etc. They can be small or huge, like the frescoes or mosaics on church walls.    Mine are done in either acrylic or egg tempera paint on gessoed wooden panels, and tend to be small ( 2×3 feet would be large for me).  Some I have reproduced as greeting cards.
