Recommended Iconographers, Anyone?

Post by Matthew »

Hello,

I would like to commission an icon in either the Greek or Russian style. I have found the two listed in the Euphrosynos Links page and their work and prices seem good. However, before I commit to placing an order with one of them, I would like to know if anyone has any other recommendations of traditional iconographers they know of. I do not have a preference for egg tempera or acrylic. Either is fine. I am more interested in the correctness, quality, and spiritual strengths of the work than the materials used.

Thanks for any advice you have.

One of our resident members, Father Photios of GOC-HOTCA, is an excellent iconographer.

Truly, if the procession of the Holy Spirit from the Father is perfect, then that from the Son is superfluous.

Mother Mariam, on the links page is awesome and very inexpensive. She wrote the Saint Euphrosynos Icon at the main page here at http://www.euphrosynoscafe.com/ and did the iconography in some of the Jordanville Metropolitan tombs.
