Through my art I wish to connect with people on a deep emotional level and awaken beauty and poetry in their souls, for I believe it is the purpose of an artist to serve the everlasting values – goodness, graciousness and love.

Our Lady of Vladimir


Egg Tempera, 24 ct. Gold on Wood Panel

Private Collection USA

Our Lady of Vladimir is one of the treasures of ancient painting of Byzantine iconography. The Holy Virgin is depicted in the moment when the baby Jesus is leaning towards her cheek and embracing her by the neck with the left hand. Full of motherly tenderness and sorrow foreseeing his future the Holy Mother of God bends toward the Christ child. The icon awakens the most deep and kind feelings.
