"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 Roman Sacred Cross is an unusual interwoven design dating from approximately 400 AD. Before 325 AD the cross was rarely used as a symbol for Christianity, but during the reign of Emperor Constantine it gradually became accepted and various designs appeared. The Roman Sacred Cross is comprised of equal interwoven arms with three components, symbolizing the Holy Trinity.
