Jane Ladik, Master Iconographer


The Task of Loss:

The Use of Icons in Working Through the Psychological

and Spiritual Journey of Loss

 Loss is an essential human experience of growth.  It is a natural consequence of living.   Understanding the way we encounter loss and the work we do with the gift of loss is an important task in the development of the human person.  Working from the book, The Task of Loss, by Dr. Marshal D. Voris, Jane will explore the world of iconography and the icon's use as a guide through the challenges of loss.

 After giving a brief history of Christian Iconography and a lesson in the language of icons, Jane will guide participants in an examination of the different ways we encounter loss.  The class will end with a prayerful meditation with the icons themselves, seeking the gifts of wisdom and insight. 

Jane R. Ladik is a Master Iconographer working in the Dallas-Ft Worth area.  Born in Oak Cliff, Jane received a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of North Texas.  While there she also concentrated her studies in Philosophy and Theology. In 1992 Jane was invited to join a class in iconography given by Phil Zimmerman, a nationally recognized iconographer of Latrobe, Pennsylvania.  She was at last able to combine her love art and theology into one expression.  Jane continued to study under Mr. Zimmerman for the next ten years.  In 2005 she began to study with Master Iconographer Jackie Nielson in Santa Fe, New Mexico, focusing on the use of egg tempera in iconography.

Jane's work can be seen in churches and private residences not only in Dallas and Ft Worth, but also across the country. Her most recent works were installed this summer in the Church of the Incarnation, Dallas and in St. Peter's Cathedral, Malawi, Africa.  Jane teaches classes in the Art of Iconography as well as lecturing on a wide range of topics concerning icons.  She has three adult children and one beautiful granddaughter.
