Genuine Traditional and contemporary iconography

Margaret is a retired teacher-librarian . We call her "Fountain of Knowledge". She spends much of her time painting, travelling and  researching Byzantine art in Venice, Rome and Turkey. Her interest in  all things Byzantine started at school under the tuition of a wonderful art teacher, Helen Luttrell, who introduced her to the mosaics of Constantinople, Ravenna  and Venice. Margaret's favourite and most inspirational mosaics are in the apses of Torcello's Cattedrale  di Santa Maria Assunta, Murano's Basilica di S.Maria e Donato, and the 9th century enthroned Mary and Child in the Hagia Sophia. In 2009 she was fortunate to visit the exhibition in Venice "Torcello 1000 Years".
