"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.

This cross is a festive design whose inspiration comes from scroll work on a beautiful iron gate at the Cathedral of St. Germaine de Pres in the sector of the same name in Paris, France.

The design incorporates what appears to be a holly motif with an unfolding lily. I found it to be very elegantand expanded this single motif into four-armed cross.
