"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 inspiration for this cross came from murals and icons of the Kyiv Perchersk Lavra, known as the Kyiv Monastery of the Caves. The monastery was founded in teh mid 11th century by St. Anthony of the Caves. Over the centuries, the monks excavated labyrinthine catacombs which have now become a UNESCO World Heritage site.
