"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 Gothic basilica of St. Jacob in Rothenburg, Germany was built in 1211 and was dedicated to the apostle St. James. St. Jacob is the German spelling. It is one of the churches on the pilgrimage route to the grave of St. James in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. A small cross was found during the construction of the west chancel in 1350. This is a copy of that cross.
