After graduating from the University of Kentucky with a degree in journalism, I spent two years at the Atlanta School of Art in Georgia. Before leaving Kentucky for art school, I spent a year promoting the idea for an educational television network in Kentucky. After art school I became the first art director for KET when it went on the air in 1968.
Subsequently, I headed the Production Department. I was the executive producer for the KET/GED series. Nearly a million people across the country watched the GED series and took the High School Equivalency Test.
And yet in the tide of life I have dabbled and played and done most of it with the joy and fun of a kid. I once chose as my epitaph, "Oh, heck! I wasn't finished playing yet!" As a young man I sold some funny cartoons. I moved on to editorial cartooning, but I wasn't mad enough, or knowledgeable enough to pursue that. I wrote PR copy for a while. 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, in the year 2000 I created and hosted a television series that introduced the “Digital Art Studio” to public television audiences across the country. For the last 20 or 30 years, my tools and brushes have been primarily computer related. I am turning back to traditional media now that I can once again be proficient at it.
A few years ago, I developed something in my hands called an "Essential Tremor" (I never once thought of it as "essential"). Gradually it worsened over the years. My hands shook and it became nearly impossible to write or draw. My frustrating tremor caused me to shake food off my 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. With a remote control I turn off the battery every night to prolong its 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.
Every morning, I am exceedingly grateful that I can just turn the tremor off.
I can now hold my camera steady and draw and paint on paper and canvas. I have also become a decent craftsman and wood artist. Using a lathe and other woodworking tools I can now produce beautiful wooden objects.
