Centennial Park

I've completed three signs for Tucson's Centennial Park.

Water Use in Tucson

4000 Years of water use in Tucson

I always learn a lot when I work on historic and science illustrations. I did a lot of research for this one.
I talked to scientists, historians, engineers and my Tohono O'odham friends and I learned
that Tucson may have the oldest irrigation canals in North America.
This irrigation technology was most likely developed right here in the Santa Cruz River valley near my house.
This illustration traces the use of water here for the last 4000 years.

Presidio

Tucson Presidio

This a view inside the old Presidio of Tucson circa 1800. The Presidio was built as protection from hostile Apache raids in the late 1700s. This is the birthplace of the city of Tucson. Although the old adobe wall is gone, there is a recreation on location at the noth east end of the old site. I painted a 50 foot mural there in 2007.

The Anza Trail Illustrations

I was commissioned by the National Park Service, the Arizona Department of Transportation,
and Pima County to create 11 signs for placement along the historic Anza trail as it winds through Pima County.
You can see more of these on the Gallery page.

Anza

The Death of Maria Feliz

The Anza expedition experienced only one death during the entire expedition when Maria Ignacia Manuela Pinuelas Feliz
died from complications from childbirth. The expedition stopped at Mission San Xavier del Bac to bury her,
mourn her death, and to celebrate three marriages of the expedition's members.
