"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 Ecole des Beaux-Artes de Paris is the most famous art school in France. Its orgins date back to 1648 and many of the great artists of European history were trained there. The school is located on the left bank of the River Seine across from the famous Lourve Museum.

The design for this cross was inspired  by a stone carving decorating the outer wall of the school.
