"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.

St. Genevieve is the Patron Saint of Paris. She was born in the village of Nanterre near Paris and died in 507. She was chiefly instrumental in banishing paganism from Paris. The procession of the relics of St. Genevieve through Paris is believed to have ended an epidemic, thus she is the special saint prayed to during disasters and fevers.

The Feast Day of St.Genevieve is January 3rd. She was not martyred, but died of natural causes.
