"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 McKeowns found the original Celtic high cross in the old village of Sannox on the Isle of Arran, Scotland. Sannox is a Viking word meaning “sandy Beach.” The double ribbon knotwork shows the influence of Viking design on late Celtic art. Byron McKeown translated this cross into sterling, pewter, and wood.
