Peter Pearson

Peter Pearson is a well known iconographer, teacher of icon painting, speaker and author on the subject. He's been studying and painting icons for nearly fifty years and brings a practical, systematic, and grounded approach to this ancient art form that is both contemporary and traditional. Over the course of his ministry as an icon painter, he's studied with a dozen master iconographers and has shared his experience/knowledge with his students. Peter has studied theology extensively and holds both an M. Div. as well as a Th. D. He brings a focus on an integrated understanding of this art which includes history, technique, theology, and prayer.  After 25 years as a parish priest, he now lives at Holy Cross Monastery in West Park, NY and is in the process of becoming a vowed member of the community there.
