Icons by Christabel Anderson

Christabel Anderson is an iconographer and manuscript illuminator based in London, UK.

She uses beautiful, carefully selected natural materials including hand crafted wood panels and stretched vellum, hand prepared mineral and earth pigments, 24 carat gold leaf and precious and semi precious jewels such as rubies, emeralds, sapphires and pearls.

Christabel graduated with distinction from the Master of Arts program at The Princeís School of Traditional Arts. She is a Queen Elizabeth Scholar and a doctoral researcher, currently developing an iconographerís manual for the early British and Irish saints.
