"None of us perceive the world in exactly the same way. Our oneness lies in a yearning to touch and to understand. My work is an endeavor to share my thoughts and vision through form and color and relationships, hoping to charge my images with meaning which will reach across the spaces between us."

Over the years I’ve learned to appreciate excellence although I rarely achieve it. The closest I come is in the ephemeral areas of concept and integrity. But, since I believe that my next effort will be my best, I will continue to pursue excellence.

The earliest examples of the art of carving runed in stone were discovered in the boglands of southwestern Denmark and date from the 3rd century. The Viking runic alphabet spread throughout Scandinavia and was carried, during the period of their rading and their settlement, into many areas of the Old and New World.

This cross is taken from a stone slab found at Jurby, Isle of Man, Britain. It depicts the story of Ragnarok, the apocalyptic, final battle between good and evil.
