Dr Katherine Sanders has a PhD in Bronze Age Syrian Mythology, and has received the formal blessing of His Eminence Archbishop Gregorios of Thyateira and Great Britain to work as an iconographer. Her focus is on an invigorated, authentic and yet dynamic approach to iconography, using the ancient proplasmos and membrane techniques, presenting Christ and His Saints as transfigured and transformed but fully human. She works in traditional egg tempera, using genuine gold leaf and pigments from precious stones. She also makes high quality church furnishings and baptismal robes, made to order and customised for each church setting.

    Dear Dr. Sanders:

    The icon: Christ and the Rich Young Ruler, just fantastic! Just thoroughly enjoyed the article you wrote and such exquisite detail and theology. Thank you so much for sharing.
    Do you ever do classes in the United States?
