Symeon’s icons are a hymn of praise, drawing as they do on the local palette of each region of Canada, they calls each of us to a deeper regard for our fragile world, a deeper attention to the Holy Spirit who, “is everywhere present and fillest all things.”
—Fr. David J. Goa, Founding Director of the Chester Ronning Centre for the Study of Religion and Public Life
More about the Studio
As an artist, the colours I find in the earth are beautiful and sacred. Using rocks, soils, plants, and bones I create pigments from places across North America .
Learning to paint an icon, or work with local colour pigments, has many benefits. For many people it is an oppertunity to connect to their faith in a new way.
