Modern Icons are a reflection, a meditation and an appreciation of traditional Icon Painting. Today, women iconographers around the world create gorgeous modern Byzantine style icons as an artistic style, a form of meditation on the art of living well. As a modern Byzantine icon painter, I join my voice to other modern iconographers who speak for all women icon artists including those who were unheard in the days of the early church.
Mary Jane Miller
Mary Jane has painted icons for more than 25 years. As a woman iconographer, she hoes to create images where people might look for their spiritual wellbeing, and ultimately, come closer to God. Painting modern Catholic icons, and designing in the New Byzantine style, Mary Jane Miller pushes the edge of tradition into a modern spiritual embrace through her graceful icon images.
Those who want to learn icon painting are welcome, regardless of artistic experience or spiritual background.
The medium is traditional egg tempera pigments and gold leaf on a wooden board panel, all materials are natural and included in the price. Meditation, artistic experience, calligraphy, or graphic-arts experience is helpful but by no means necessary.
