The American Association of Iconographers was formed to create community amongst Iconographers working in the United States as well as abroad, and to foster a sense of relationship to those Iconographers working in Europe and Russia. The notion of developing a particular American style of Icon writing is one that belongs to the twenty-first century.  This blog will post all related links and articles to help individual Iconographers to form their own opinions and associations.

Christine Simoneau Hales has been writing icons since a 1996 photo shoot in France with her husband, Mick Hales, introduced her to the beauty and power of icons.  Mick was photographing the book, “Monastic Gardens”, and at a convent in St. Georges des Gardes, Christine had an encounter with their then Iconographer Sister Myriam, that changed the course of her life.

Christine is a professional artist : www.christinehalescom  with many exhibitions and collectors of her contemporary paintings. Her passion is painting and teaching, in that order!  To commission a work or enquire about an icon, please email: christine@newchristianicons.com.

  1. Christine, Hi!
    I am a student at Free Columbia with Laura and Nathaniel. We were looking at an icon, and the one that Laura made with you and a few of us were wondering about the possibility of creating an icon class during our time here if you would be available for us. I would love to talk with you about the details, of particular interest is the cost and time frame for such an endeavor.
    Any information would be appriciated. My phone # is 231.651.0983
    email: laudriebrown@gmail.com
    Thank you,
    Audrie Brown
