From a Previous Post: The Idaho Statesman had a front page article on Nov 5, 2011 about the Northwest’s own Boise Iconographer Deacon Matthew Garrett entitled; “Faces of faith: Orthodox Christian iconographer in Boise is part of an ancient tradition.” More of his work can be seen by visiting his website Holy Icons, and his blog-Holy Icons an Iconographers blog. He also just published a book “Sanctify those Who Love the Beauty of Thy House” image on the right. “More than a Piece of Art” is another article on Mr. Garrett and his Iconography that was done for a Church in West Virginia by the Register Herald in Beckley, WV.
