“She Who is Quick to Hear”

Oil on Canvas
by Ariane Trifunovic Montemuro
“I pray whatever I do or create, God gives me the strength and spiritual discernment to use my talents for His glory! I also hope that my works inspire people to become closer to God, through His Holy Orthodox Christian Saints.”

Ariane takes the time to impart deep meaning and custom details to each subject she paints. An academically trained oil painter, she often embellishes each artwork piece with genuine gold leaf. A considerable amount of preparation time is taken with each commission. Ariane will request stories, photos and any meaningful, significant information that can help her understand her subject. All information and photos will be returned to you. Of course, if possible, meeting the subject is ideal. Ariane believes painting for you is an honor. Each one is created with the intention of becoming a treasure for your family and a legacy for future generations to enjoy.
