"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 contemporary design inspired by a bas-relief on an outer wall of the Basillica of Sacred Cœur in Paris, France.

It is a combination of several symbols-the Sacred Heart, a traditional cross, and a sea shell. The shell is a symbol of pilgramage and is most often seen as part of Spanish crosses, particularly those concerned with the pilgram’s trail to Santiago de Compostela, Spain, the burial place of St. James.
