"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 design for this cross was inspired by many Spanish Images including the legend of El Cid, the 11th Century Spanish hero.

In Burgos, there is a great Gothic cathedral which was founded in 1221 by Ferdinand III of Castile. Since 1919, the bones of the El Cid have rested there.
