"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 design is derived from Navajo rug patterns created by weavers in the small community of Ganado, New Mexico.

John J. Hubble founded a trading post at Ganado. He encouraged native craftsmen and brought Navajo weaving and silver work to the attention of the general public. Today, Ganado rugs are known and collected throughout the world.
