ANNAMARIA E MARIANGELA TONDELLO
Anna Maria fell in love with icon painting when she was 20 and she saw a postcard. She followed her growing passion to Milan where she studied under a master. Mariangela Tondello is a master of the preparation of the gold leaf
Mariangela followed her sister soon afterwards and they create together: one is responsible for the traditional base and one for the paintings. To learn the ancient technique they attended courses with Russian masters and visited orthodox monasteries that conserve the artisanal secret of wood and colors technique. Anna Maria is now a master and her Icons reflect her soul and communicate her peace and harmony.
