Don Stewart received his BS degree in Biology and Art at Birmingham-Southern College in 1981, paying his way with a nightclub act as a comic ventriloquist. Initially he enrolled in art classes as a respite from the rigors of premedical studies. Soon, however, he was exposed to the process of composite imagery, and began exploring techniques in ballpoint drawing. Don continued to pursue artistic interests as a hobby during medical training at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
“A wide variety of talents”… Art Product News
After receiving his M.D. in 1985, Dr. Stewart moved north to Minnesota, to complete an internship in surgery at the Mayo Clinic. The lifestyle of a surgical resident proved, however, to be at odds with his creative side. By year's end, Don opted to discontinue his medical studies, after accepting awards for both short fiction and poetry, and publishing his first two composite drawings. He has since worked as a graphic artist, writer, and creative consultant through his company, DS Art.

The Aldridge Garden's "Art in the Gardens" Art Show was a great success. We really enjoyed meeting so may new people and receiving such wonderful comments and ideas for new photographic projects. I'd also like to thank all of Hanging Around Hoover's customers that were able to make the event. It really meant a lot to us that you were able to attend.

I am a self taught Gourd Artist who has many years of experience in painting and carving. I love gourds because they are a part of nature, I also grow my own.
My art is a combination of wood burning, carving, painting and coiling.
Gourds are wonderful canvasses to work on.
My gourds have won many ribbons at gourd shows, and are in many private collections throughout USA. I am a member of the Alabama and American Gourd Society.
When you pick up one of my gourds you will feel and see the care, love and patience that went into making a unique piece of art.
