Growing up around Orthodox icons and visiting Cyprus when I was seven exposed me to the traditional techniques of egg tempera painting, fresco and iconography. After painting The Hellenic Republic mural of St. George, I felt there was more to do, and there still will be, especially on the handmade panels that my Dad makes for me.
