ALPHA SHANAHAN is a Catholic painter whose current works mainly focus on creating religious/devotional paintings. She is greatly inspired by the icons {Byzantine, Russian and Greek}, as well as the 'retablos' of Mexican religious heritage. As a self-taught artist, Alpha has not been trained to use the traditional method in painting icons. For about twelve years, her almost daily painting practice of faces and figures has gained her the skills necessary to produce these sacred images using oils and acrylic. Within those years, she has been greatly encouraged by clients as well as co-artists from the USA, United Kingdom, Germany, Brazil, and the Philippines.
