"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 reproduction in silver of an ancient stone image found in the oratory graveyard of Kilcananagh, Iris Meanin, the middle of the three Aran Islands 30 miiles off the west coast of Ireland.

This 12th century cross combines the symbols of the Virgin Mary, (the star and t he crecent moon) with a traditional cross.

These symbols go further back in history as the symbols for the goddess aisis.
