Brian sees hand-painted icons as works of skill and prayer to be treasured for a lifetime, encouraging contrition and prayer by their holy presence. Icon painting is a specialized craft requiring training and prayerful, careful execution. Icons painted by Brian are crafted with the highest regard for prayer, aesthetics, and Orthodox iconographic traditions. For all custom icons, Brian prayerfully considers the life of the Saint depicted and references as many existing icons that can be found.
