"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.

This cross is based on a 10th century pendant from Fossi, Iceland. It may have been a Thor’s Hammer design, but it also resembles a Christian Cross

In many cultures, Christian Missonaries blended pagan symbols with their own to make the new religion more familiar to the recently converted.
