"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 Basilica of Saint-Clotilde was the first neo-Gothic church built in Paris. Pope Leo XIII consecrated it in 1897. St.Clotilde was born in Lyons in 495, she married Clovis, the King of the Franks. After her marriage, she convinced Clovis to become a Catholic. Cloyilde died in Tours in 545.

Cesar Franck was the organist at the church from 1858 until his death in 1890. This cross was inspired by fretwork in the choir rail behind the organ he played.
