Nicholas Papas

Nicholas Papas has been producing art since early childhood. He has been producing art as an adult child, professionally, for over 35 years. 

While studying painting at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Nicholas simultaneously began to learn iconography from his priest, the late Reverend John Osacky (+ Job, Archbishop of the Midwest, O.C.A.).

After receiving his degree in 1981, he advanced his iconographic skills in Athens, Greece under the tutelage of Nicholas and Basil Lepoura. 

For over three decades Nicholas has been blessed with opportunities to paint for churches and homes throughout the United States.  It is his hope that God will use his work in a way that people will learn of the love of God.

While Nick's main ministry is to create icons, he has also been known to express himself with many media and with various styles.  Additionally, he has offered workshops and had his thoughts published in places such as "The Word" Magazine and the OCN's Blog "The Sounding".
