"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 Church of Saint-Germain-des-Pres is located on the river Seine at #2 Place du Louvre. It was founded in the 7th century. St. Germain was born in Auxerre, France in 380 and is the patron saint of that city. He died in Ravenna, Italy in 448.

This cross was inspired by the magnificent design of the main altar railing.
