Fr. Damian Higgins is abbot of Holy Transfiguration Monastery (California) and a priest of the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of St. Nicholas in Chicago. He has served the Church as an iconographer for twenty-five years, focusing primarily in the traditional Byzantine methods using egg tempera. He emphasizes the revealing capacity of natural materials in the sacred art of iconography to convey God’s eternal truth.
