Shortly after moving to Kentucky......before I was even totally unpacked.......I received an email from KET about doing an interview with me. Of course, I was super excited, so regardless of not being completely settled....I agreed. Not being with outsome personal issues....after moving my studio from a lovely 300 sq.ft. space to a laundry room that I had to share with a washer and dryer and dog bowls. Needless to say the space was small and cramped. The KET producer assured me this would not be an issue. And it really wasn't......most of the shots were of me and my work. The shots of me actually working were cropped in very tight. The whole interview process took about 5 hours with the actual segment being about 6 minutes. The crew was great and the producer really knew what he was doing in order to complete his "vision" with the piece. It was a really great experience so I hope you will catch it tonight on KET at 7pm or tomorrow at 3:30 and 6pm.
Special thanks to Catie Bates who kept my children occupied throughout the day!!!

I just found out about this very cool nomination over at rikrakstudio's blog! Wow, what a wonderful blog too! If you head over there you can vote for me! The best part is the judge is Robert Mahar from Mahar Dry Goods!! Out of 150 nominations my work has been included in the final 10. I already feel like a winner! I know people say this all the time but, I have never won anything! Well, if you don't count winning every Cure album from a record store in the 80's. I mean I do love the Cure but every album?....I spread the wealth with my friends on that one! Thank you in advance!! >smile....smile......smile!
Go vote! (please).
