"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 ancient Celts believed the rowan tree to be a bearer of good fortune and could be beneficial in driving away witches. A rowan tree, more commonly known as the mountain ash, is often planted near the doorstep of a home.

To this day, many people in Ireland and Scotland will not fell a rowan tree lest it bring them ill fortune.

This cross was designed by Deanne McKeown, stylizing the compound leaf structure of a Scottish rowan.
