"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 1231 at Cara Vaca, Spain, a priest imprisoned during the Moorish occupation was instructed by his captors to say a Mass in order to satisfy their curiosity about the Catholic rite.

The priest began, stopped when he realized that a required element, a cross, was not present. His captors grew angry at the delay, but then, through an open window, a cross appeared: the Pectoral Cross of the Patriarch of Jerusalem, miracululously transported to the site by two angels.
