-—Art in DC—-
Implicit Bias, a group show exploring how our unconscious prejudices influence us, features some of my paintings from my Apple Pie series, including the one at right. My work is at the Joan Hisaoka Art Gallery and at the Takoma location of Busboys and Poets through 5 December, and the artists’ talk is 17 October at 3:30 PM at the Joan Hisaoka!

-—Portraying people—-
I may have been painting portraits for over a decade now, but it never gets old, because humans are endlessly fascinating to me. For images of my portrait work, check out my portfolio. To find out more about commissioning a portrait of yourself or a loved one, go here.

-—Art talk—-
In July, I spoke at a conference in France and this is the video of the presentation with English subtitles! It builds on ideas from my 2014 TEDx talk about the role of imitation in art, and everything is explained in greater detail in this book.
