Brother Thomas Skowron is a Capuchin Franciscan friar born in Poland and raised in Germany, living in the USA since 2019. He began painting icons in 2017. He studied at Eikonon Schole in Uzhgorod, Ukraine, an iconography school of the Greek Catholic Eparchy of Mukachevo and the Capuchin Custody of Ukraine and Russia, as well as with Fr. Anthony Gunin and George Kordis. He focuses on classical Byzantine and Neo-Byzantine iconography and traditional techniques of egg tempera, but he’s also interested in contemporary trends, in particular in the art of Jerzy Nowosielski and new iconography of Lviv, Ukraine.
