"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.

Saint-Eustache Cathedral is one of the largest cathedrals in Paris after Notre-Dame de Paris. It has it’s origin in an earlier church dedicated to St. Agnes. It wasn’t until 1532, when it became necessary to enlarge the town square, that the mayor of Paris started construction on the new cathedral. It was finally completed 100 years later and consecrated on the 26th of April 1637. While many famous Parisians like Moliere and Richelieu are buried in the cathedral, this cross is dedictaed to St. Agnes. The design came from a small cross in the side chapel of St. Agnes.
