Who We Are



ROBERT BENGTSON : Artist

Robert's the creative genius behind all the offerings. For decades he's been creating things and experiences intending to bring out the best in people. From photography, to art installations, to interactive experiences, to even billboards.

A fine-art commercial photographer, Robert started his career assisting for a professional photographer back in the early 1990's. This eventually led to him launching his own studio at the north end of Sausalito which he had for over a decade. With this website and the newly opened gallery space in Old Town Sausalito, Robert's art and creativity are available to the public for the first time.

Robert currently resides in Southern Marin with the dog (Onawa) who adopted him from Mexico. Both can often be found down at the courtyard gallery. Learn more by visiting robertbengtson.com

 

 

CHRISTI DUMA : Gallery Manager

Meaningful exchange and service to the community are at the core of the entrepreneurial spirit Christi brings to the duo. Working for small businesses has given Christi experience in many aspects of running a successful venture: sales, marketing, training, business development, speaking, and event-planning. Her additional experience as an educator, along with working for non-profits supporting children and families, compliment her ability to collaborate well with others. 

Christi shares the vision with Robert of offering people the highest-frequency things and experiences that can be imagined as a way to uplift and inspire the creative process in others. She values the sacred in all things and sees Robert's art as embodying precisely this.  

Christi can often be found with dough in her hands or with feet on a trail. She lives in Mill Valley with her son and a talkative black cat. Compassion and gratitude navigate her way.
