I studied journalism at the University of Kentucky and art in Atlanta, GA. I came back to Kentucky to become the first art director at the Kentucky Educational Television network (KET).
In the tide of life I have dabbled and played, and through most of it I have done it with the joy and fun of a kid. I once chose as my epitaph, "Oh, heck! I wasn't finished playing yet!" I started as a cartoonist, but having fun and drawing funny pictures that editors will pay for are two different things...at least for me. I moved on to editorial cartooning, but I wasn't mad enough, or knowledgeable enough. I wrote PR copy for awhile. I did freelance artwork. I was an art director and a TV producer and a photographer. I have done set designs and set construction.
As an early advocate of using the digital canvas to create art and to make giclée prints, I created and hosted a television series that introduced the digital studio and canvas to public television audiences across the country. For the last 20 or 30 years, my tools and brushes have been primarily computer related. Although I am now turning back to traditional media now that I can once again be proficient at it.
For many years I have had something called an "Essential Tremor" (which I never once thought of as "essential"). It very gradually worsened. May hands shook and it was difficult to write or draw, tasks that became nearly impossible to accomplish a couple of years ago. My frustrating tremor enabled me to shake food off why fork and toss coffee on people nearby...and myself.
Fortunately, I had a procedure called "Deep Brain Stimulation" in Sept., 2014, at the UK Medical Center which virtually stopped the tremor. I now have a battery implanted in my chest with a couple of wires leading from it to a point inside my brain. A small amount of electric charge now corrects my tremor. I turn off the battery every night to prolong the battery life. My tremor returns immediately, but it doesn’t matter. I will be sleeping. Amazingly, when I turn the battery on in the morning I feel a surge of energy in my body and few moments later I am again cured.
With a freshened memory of my condition every morning, I am exceedingly grateful that I can turn the tremor off.
I can now draw and paint on paper and canvas, and I have also become a decent craftsman and wood artist using a lathe and other woodworking tools.
