"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.

In 950 AD Danish Viking artisans carved the walrus ivory panels of the famous Bamberg Casket which later became known as the jewelry box of Queen Kunigunde. On either side of the key hole in the lid of the box are eagles. This cross was designed using the eagle motif.
