Our original St. Paul icon was given to the glory of God by our founding members, LeGrand and Dianne Jones, in 2020.
About our Iconographer Mrs. Marcia Allison (Daytona Beach, FL)
Our icon of St. Paul was a commissioned piece intended to be integrated into the new church branding. Led to study iconography in 2009 while her husband was in seminary, Marcia Allison says, “My talent comes from God guiding my hand through prayer and study of scriptures.” Allison was tutored for three years under Judith Kaestner in Oconomowoc, WI, and her teaching methodology came from the Russian Orthodox founder of the Prosopon School of Iconography, Vladislav Andrejev. Allison continues to study her craft with Icon Masters Theodoros Papadopoulos, Greece and Daniel Neculae, Romania using egg tempra mediums and other Russian icon masters, as well as Theresa Harrison in acrylic. Allison teaches icon writing in egg tempra, Byzantine style, and feels that the icon workshops bring a presence of peace and spiritual presence. “Each of my icons have a story, and specific prayerful intention. My hope is to share the spiritual peace and closeness with God that comes from the practice of icon writing” Allison says.
