About ...
Vivian has a true love for her vocation and she’s trying to bring spiritually stimulating artwork into the churches. Her diversity as a painter makes it easy to define a specially designed work for any church. She creates small to wall scale paintings on wood panels or canvas. Vivian’s icons are evoking works of fine art as well as visual aids that lead those who view and venerate the icons deeper into the spiritual life of the church.

Born in Greece, she moved to N. America in 1990 and since 1991 she’s living in Houston, TX with her husband and two daughters. She studied Byzantine iconography in Greece. She continued her studies in art at the University of Houston. During the past 20 years, she painted in many mediums including oils, acrylics, watercolors, but her primary medium is the egg tempera, one of the oldest and most versatile mediums.
