What I love most about the icons in Miko’s studio is their very personal touch. For example, my young son’s patron saint is St. David of Wales. We’ve seen many different icons of St David. What we envisioned was one icon that captured everything we saw in all those icons, yet remained true to the traditions of iconography. St. David is often pictured with a dove lighting on his shoulder, and he is known for having had a special love of the Psalms. Miko was able to incorporate both of these things into a beautiful hand-painted icon that is truly one of a kind. The icon of Saint Patrick is one of our favorites because we wanted the traditional shamrock, a line from St. Patrick’s “Breastplate,” and his bishop’s garb. Miko created just that. We love each and every icon we’ve commissioned and also the ones we’ve bought straight from website.
