"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.

In 1531 a “Lady from Heaven” appeared to a humble Native American at Tepeyac, a hill northwest of what is now Mexico City. She identified herself as the ever virgin Holy Mary, Mother of God. She requested that a church be bulit on the site where she appeared.

This church was indeed built and Our Lady has ever after been loved and revered throughout the world.

The Feast of Our Lady Guadalupe is celebrated on December 12.

“A great sign appeared in the heaven; a woman clothed with sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars”
