Jonathan Pageau

jonathan-pageau

(From his website) Jonathan Pageau graduated with honors from the Painting and Drawing program at Concordia University in Montreal during the late 1990s.

Quickly disillusioned with contemporary art, he discovered icons and traditional Christian images along his own spiritual journey. Rekindling his love of art through study of traditional forms, Jonathan develops a passion for wood carving. While living in Kenya for several years, he also discovers the properties of a certain type of steatite called Kisii stone.

Having studied Orthodox Theology and Iconology at the University of Sherbrooke, since 2003 Jonathan has been carving different types of liturgical objects. His carvings have been commissioned by priests, bishops and laypeople in the United States, Canada and in Europe. His work is also represented by major liturgical art companies including Desmarais & Robitaille in Canada and New World Byzantine Studios in the United States.

Jonathan is also one of editors and contributors s of the Orthodox Arts Journal and also teaches icon carving with Hexaemeron, a non-profit organization dedicated to the sacred-arts.
