"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 design for this cross is inspired by bas-relief carvings that detail the nave of the Church of Sts. Peter and Paul in the North Beach district of San Francisco. This church was founded by the Salesian order which is the third largest order in the Catholic Church. Based on dedication of service to youth and family, the order was founded in the 19th century in the Piedmont area of northwest Italy st St. John Bosco.
