I am thrilled to participate in the annual Root Division Art Auction through the sponsorship of my gallery SLATE Contemporary.

This year, the auction is a hybrid event with an in-person celebration the evening of October 21st, as well as online bidding for those who prefer to participate virtually that night.

Virtual open studio

I am excited to invite you to my virtual Open Studio on Wednesday, September 29th between 4:00pm – 8:00pm PDT!!  As a part of the San Francisco Bay Area-wide ArtSpan event, I will be sharing my latest work and techniques with visitors through a free online platform called Booth Central.  It works similar to a Zoom call but allows for greater functionality and interaction with artists. 

Included below are pictures of some of my latest work that I will be discussing.  I look forward to questions, lively discussion and a wonderful evening!  In addition, I will be highlighting available works through my gallery SLATE Contemporary in Oakland, CA.
