I am an Italian icon painter, and Painting has always been my passion since I was a child.
When I completed my diploma in Arts at San Giuseppe High school in Monza I moved for the first time and graduated at Accademia delle Belle Arti di Bologna and I began to appreciate the aesthetic and spiritual nature of Bizantine Art and Italian Medieval painting. After specializing in antique and contemporary mosaics in Ravenna I studied Iconography with St. Petersburgh masters.
Since then I have completed several art commissions for both private and corporate clients, and I have taught to adults and children in Italy and the UK. I organised and took part in Iconography exhibitions since 2004.
I now live in Cheshire, England.
Drawing and painting a genuine Christian Icon with traditional techniques.
Veronica made two icons on the occasion of our wedding last year: Our Saviour and Our Lady of Yaroslav.
Opening the parcel we were breathless: we could not imagine such a masterpiece! Looking at them we are so pleased of the careness and the attention paid to every single detail. We are particularly amazed by the gold finish and engravings: their level is outstanding! We can feel all the effort, the hearth and the prayers put in the realization. We realised to hold in our home a real treasure either because of the artistic and sacred value.
