"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 design in sliver by Deanne McKeown inspired by the “Ojo de Dios“, or Eye of God weaving from Old Mexico. These tradional amulets are made by wrapping colored yarns around a cross made of wooden sticks. They are made in many sizes and although they appear very colorful and festive, the underlying intent is to afford protection from all evil.
