In Acknowledgment of Grandmothers
My grandmothers, born nearly a century ago in Ukraine, fled war-torn Europe after WWII. Their decisions
have made it possible for me to be an artist in America. I dedicate this exhibition to Olha Bachynsky and Luba Cholhan,
whose courage in adversity and faith in God contribute so profoundly
to my calling — the painting of icons for sacred spaces.
