My photo
I'm an artist living in San Francisco, on a wooded hillside overlooking the Farallon Islands. Redtail hawks soar overhead and sometimes perch outside the studio window, and raccoons, possums and skunks are nocturnal visitors. And this is in the middle of the city!

Holly Roberts at Modern Book

I love it when an artist whose work I've
long admired turns out to be every bit as great
in person as I'd hoped. I've been following the
work of New Mexico artist Holly Roberts for
several years now, so when she was at Modern
Book Gallery for a book signing last week I went
to meet her and buy the handsome book of her
work from 2000-2009 that the gallery has
published. We talked a bit about not being
afraid to go to the "dark side" and the saving
grace of humor, and I wished she lived nearer
and that I could know her better. Her work
will be on view through August 28 at
Modern Book, 49 Geary, San Francisco.
