"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.

Very litte is known of St. Ninian, but it is believed that he came to Scotland as a Christian missionary in 397 AD from Ireland. He is acknowledged as Scotland’s first sainty.

Ninian settled in what is now county Galloway in the early trading community if Whithorn. As early as the 7th century, people have made pilgrimage to the shrine of St. Ninian at Whithorn, believing in the Saint’s power to cure illnesses and perform miracles.
