"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.

In 397 St. Ninian, the first Christian missionary to Scottland, built a whitewashed stone church on the isle of Whithorn. The native Picts called is “HVITAERN”, the white house. This is a replica of a cross found during an archeological excavation on the site. The early missionaries incorporated the five rings of the sun symbol, which was an important Pictish deity, ito this early Christian cross.
