I have been exploring the symbolism and relationship between the triskele, the tree, and the monolithic stones in Europe as symbols of protection. My current series is represented and expressed through a series of diptychs, triptychs, miniature carvings, drawings, and jewelry made with horn and copper.

My investigation of the Celtic symbols, which were made more profound with the addition of Christianity, has informed this project. I have spent increasing amounts of creative energy and research into the many possible combinations, meanings, and interactions between these three symbols, both from Christian and pagan perspectives, from the juxtaposition of how these two different perspectives collide and, at times, blend.

This current series of artwork is my latest effort to explore the, already, mentioned themes and deeper meaning. This series of artwork is devoted to the relationship of the human need to express the undefinable in nature and, in doing so, come to terms with the reality of God and His creation. I relate to these symbols, personally, through my art and faith as a devoted Christian.
