"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.

Calf of Man is a small island adjacent to the Isle of man, England. This cross is a replica of an alter fragment found in 1770. The original was carved by Celtic artists ca.800 AD, The delicacy of their carving is unequaled for the period.

The design is typically Byzantine and illustrates the influence of the Eastern Mediterranean Church on the Celtic Church.
