Mary Burke is a Franciscan sister living in Melbourne. Her interest in and love of icons began when she was working in the Middle East in the Melkite Church.
Since her return to Australia she has worked with people with disabilities and more recently with women and children experiencing domestic violence. She is currently working as a psychologist and iconographer.
Mary loves the interplay of image, symbol and theology in icons and enjoys exploring these connections while writing icons.
