    You are both, incredibly gifted, talented, and disciplined. If you ever decide to have a class, I am certain many budding iconographer would be interested in learning from you. Please put my name on the lust.

    Thank you for this interview with Anna. She is a masterful iconographer, and, always, always a humble person. I feel blessed to have known her mother, and I am also blessed to know her. Our Church in Bonita Springs, Florida has six of her icons, and we treasure them. This wonderful article is especially good because it highlights her talents in the photos.

    Modesty is a beautiful thing for an iconographer. Something you can’t hear in this interview is how in person, Anna’s quiet deliberate answers are always surrounded by a thoughtful silence (and a disarming sense of humor). She has awe for the work, understands it’s an enormous responsibility, and knows her role in it all. When Ksenia talked about the disposition of an iconographer, she repeated Luke 17:10 “…when you have done all the things commanded of you, say, we are unprofitable servants; we have done that which was our duty to do”. It’s not even modesty, it’s just honesty.

    Excellent interview. The icons bear out what her words are saying. They show her mastery of the process and the elements of the icon, without being flowery. It seems like she lets the saints do the talking, not her painting.
