Christine Hales,  " Icons are extraordinary.  They are able to bring the valuable Traditions of Icon Writing into a twenty-first Century vernacular that never ceases to engage and uplift viewers. Their value to our culture  is established by the effect they have of bringing God's presence to the viewer." 

ICONS   

Icons written by Christine Simoneau Hales

" 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. "
