" I am convinced that you write by the spirit of the canons. The Light of Tabor and of Most Holy Sophia (are they really different?) radiates through every icon you write. They are alive with Holy Presence and the energies of Theosis. " P.S. Collector, Commissioner
” It is certainly a challenging task to take up the iconic vocabulary and make it fresh and visually relevant to our time. Christine Simoneau Hales has succeeded in doing so, and doing so brilliantly. I would never have thought that it would be possible for a contemporary artist to work in the wake of the great Byzantine masters. And yet, Simoneau Hales has done so not only beautifully but indeed she has done so in a way that makes her work consonant with our times. “ Andre Emmerich, Past President, Art Dealers of America”
I could never have imagined that having no painting background, I would actually be able to create an Icon that I am completely delighted with, and in the process, be touched by the Divine.
"Christine Hales imparts knowledge, confidence, enthusiasm and profound wisdom into the process of Icon writing. She provides slide shows of the masters, as well as hands on personal assistance.
What a wonder to be immersed in the theology of Icon writing with the foremost expert in the field of Iconography. This class has changed my life by providing a transformation both within and without. Thank you Christine and Michael!" Sharon S. Icon Student
"Learning the divine art of Iconography from Christine Hales is like learning opera with Botticelli. Her knowledge of Iconography is so extensive and her expertise and talent for teaching is dwarfed only by her sacred gift for icon writing. She is the complete package: artist, teacher, vessel." Jennifer G, Icon Student
