He apprenticed with Massachusetts master Russian iconographer Ksenia Pokrovsky, and now has his own New Hampshire studio, Holy Images, where he specializes in Russian, Byzantine, and Ethiopian Orthodox icon-writing. Christopher's work can be found throughout the United States, including several churches in eastern New England, as well as theUnited Kingdom, Germany, Holland, Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, New Zealand, and Bermuda. He has lectured at the Harvard Divinity School, the International Society of Gilders, and Harvard's School
of Middle Eastern Studies. Christopher was an artist in residence at Andover Newton Theological School from 1997-2005.
