A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.

I rarely explain my work, but with this painting I’d like to. In some way our parrot here represents my slightly Hispanic heritage. My Great Great Grandpa,William Roxburgh came to the America’s in 1841. He left Scotland via Liverpool and made his home in Vera Cruz, there he married  Juana Beltran who’s Mexican blood is in my veins. Their son Alfred Felix came to San Diego in 1899. His wife Margaret was an artist who loved to draw and paint Balboa Park from it’s inception.

Haunted Hotel & Comic Con!

the Comic Con is up and so is The Haunted Hotel in SD’s Gaslamp through Sat night

  • The original 18″ x 24″ “Hotel” logo was hand inked on velum in 1993. It was then digitally updated in 2005 on my Mac. The illustration was made by taking photos of props and local architecture and then creating digitally. I’ve continued to be Art director and design sets for HH Inc. for the Hotel, Trail of Balboa Park and Screamzone this past 23 years.
