"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.

Martin Luther (1483-1546) wrote, “The cross alone is our theology.” He believed one knows God not through works, but through suffering, the cross, and faith. In 1516 Luther changed his family coat of arms from a crossbow and two white roses, to a cross and a rose. “This heart is fixed upon the center of a white rose to show that faith causes joy, consolation, and peace.”

This motif became the seal for the Lutheran.
