"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 Cross Germania. or German Cross, is derived from an early design composed of four Latin gammas. An Addition bar was added to each gamma, forming four “F’s”. The letters “F” stand for the German words, frisch, fromm, frohich, frei, or “hardy, goddfearing, cheerful and free”
