"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. Hyacinth was born in 1185 and Canonized in 1594. In Latin countries he is known as San Jacinto and he is the patron saint of those in danger of drowning. He is also the patron saint of St. Hyacinth’s Basilica in Chicago, Illinois. The interior of this basilica is done in opulent Barogue style and the facade has a rare three-towered design. This cross is inspired by magnificent crowns worn by statues of the Madonna and Child.
