My name is Denise Clemenco and I am an artist, painter, and a fine art restorer. I have a degree in Theology and I specialize in "Byzantine Religious Painting" at the University of Bucharest, Romania. I am mother of two children.
I enjoy hand painting wooden icons in the Romanian Byzantine style, which is slightly different from the Greek, Russian, Serbian and Bulgarian byzantine styles. The paintings found in Romanian Churches are characterized by the uniqueness of color and beauty, and also by the gentleness faces that characters have. Romanian religious art is the most colorful, vibrant and full of life, quite distinct from other orthodox countries, which rely mostly on gold plating their representations.
I invite you to watch, admire...
