Bishop William Gregg said, “The original icons demonstrate a deep understanding of the inconographic tradition woven with a stretching of that tradition to express the content of the faith in new directions that raise challenges and questions. The reflections are strong, revealing a woman's voice of faith, confidence, courage, determination, and hope. The icons are exquisite. The combination is rich, providing much for pondering, thinking, praying, and then to embody in daily life."
Mary Jane Miller is a full-time artist iconographer for over 25 years, and currently lives in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. She paints and teaches the ancient Byzantine style art of Icon writing as a prayer form. Her understanding of its spiritual symbologic language and her dedicated skill result in an experience that is deeply meditative as well as artistic. She teaches using traditional medium of egg tempera and gold leaf. Her magnificent and unique studio in Mexico is open by appointment. The Mary …More

PURPOSE OF ICON PAINTING. Icon painting appeared as far back as the 4th and 5th century and it was from the beginning meant as a spiritual movement rather than an Art movement. From that time the content of icon painting was interwoven with life...evolution...traditional values....knowledge. Iconographers strive to interpret that world. Icons express holiness and potentially become more than just a representation of physical beauty but invite us into a realm of mystery. Icon image is more than the portrayal of natural form and beautiful lines. Icons point to a sublime spiritual world, the unseen element within natural forms and its abstracted essence. Iconography is a practice which serves the ideals of faith through the contemplation of image, gazing at icons activate our potential to realize how spirit becomes flesh, moving from mind to matter and back.
Mixing dirt and mystery is amusing, every brush stroke with egg tempera reminds you of the moment in Genesis where breath and …More

Traditionally there have been too few images of women in icons, too few Orthodox women iconographers, and too few Catholic women who teach, or are recognized as female mystics. In light of this historical absence of women in the traditional Byzantine era, there is room today for change and new expression. Women of today still embrace the doctrine and discipline while continually maintaining the celebrated prayer focus which is the finest aspect of the practice.
Byzantine style Icons are an organic and dynamic piece of tradition dating back 1,700 years.
The practice of egg tempera has quietly endured and continues to speak across generations even today. “As a contemporary iconographer, adding new image and perspectives my physical, mental and spiritual strengths are reflected in the art form while my attention is tuned to an inner silence.”
Traditional Byzantine icons are a gift the Orthodox Church has given to the world, a well preserved doctrine for the expression and unification …More
