Feodosii worked in a style similar to that of his father, Dionisii. Together with his father and his brother Vladimir, Feodosii painted frescoes and icons in the Uspenie Bogomateri Cathedral in the Monastery of Joseph of Volokolamsk (after 1485). Feodosii’s icons and the frescoes have not been preserved. The three painters also did frescoes and icons in the Rozhdestvo Bogoroditsy Cathedral in the Ferapontov Monastery. Feodosii was in charge of the painting of the interior of the Blagoveshchenskii Cathedral in the Moscow Kremlin in 1508.
