Who we are

Our Philosophy

We are Eka and Eri, mother and  daughter, living in the island of Crete, Greece. Since 2012 we have turned an old warehouse into a workshop where we paint byzantine icons as well as greek folk and ethnic  themes 

For us icons should be accessible to all people, for the assistance, consolation and healing they provide to the human heart and spirit and we aim to convey this veneration and affection felt- to our customers; from the point of viewing, to ordering our icons, to finally unwrapping the package that contains them

We feel that our work bridges a gap; We try to take up a place between expensive, exquisite pieces of religious art and, mass-produced, low quality print-outs of older known works. We insist on hand painted pieces and original themes. And we do reduce our costs by using our own materials without compromising the quality and traditional techniques.

Our essential goal is to make our customers glad that the icon is finally theirs to care for, to inspire them. In brief, we take charge of transforming a mere purchase into a spiritual uplifting experience.
