Hand-Painted Icons

 

The Iconographer

Erin (Farha) Kimmett was trained in the Greek Cretan School of Iconography some twenty-five years ago. Since that time, she has been blessed to work in her studio where she carefully researches each subject and then prayerfully paints the icons according to holy tradition. Each panel icon is hand-painted on a ¾ inch birch gessoed panel with 23.5 kt gold leaf background and halo. Fresco-style icons are painted on canvas and then installed; the finished icon looks as if it is painted directly on the wall.

 

Custom Orders & Pricing

Erin accepts icon commissions for churches as well as for personal prayer. Since icons are only painted by commission, you are not able to purchase hand-painted icons directly from this site. While this means that you must wait for your icon to be hand-painted, the beauty of this is that you and your loved ones will be remembered in prayer while the icon is being painted.  

The price of each icon depends on the panel size and complexity of the image (subject matter, number of figures, type of background/scenery, etc.) Please contact Erin directly for pricing.
