"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 contemporary design inspired by a bas-relief on an outer wall of the Basillica of Sacré Cœur in Paris, France.

It consists of a traditional four-armed cross with a central motif of the Sacred Heart surrounded by a Crown of Thorns. It is a symbol of the love and sacrifice of Christ.
