I lived and worked in Greece for about two years with extended visits to the monasteries and icon studios of Mount Athos. I met and observed master iconographers at work at Mount Athos and elsewhere, including Yannis Karusos who decorated many of Greece's best-known churches in the 20th century. They were my mentors.                                                                                                  --David Giffey
