Her writings are included in Arts Across Kentucky, D-Lib, and Kentucky Libraries. Along with exhibitions around the country, her photographs have appeared in The Head & The Hand Press, Appalachian Heritage, The Old-Time Herald, Heartwood, Spaces Magazine, Ace Weekly, Louisville Music News, Kentucky Bach Choir, Lexington’s Herald-Leader, and in the documentary Kentucky Bourbon Tales: Distilling the Family Business. From 2006-2010, she was co-creator and senior producer for tonic: the arts and music magazine at NPR affiliate, WUKY. She’s been awarded grants from the Kentucky Arts Council, LexArts, and the Kentucky Foundation for Women, and was commissioned a Kentucky Colonel in 1988. In 2003, her photo series Down the Backstretch: Women in the Thoroughbred Industry was awarded a citation of merit from Kentucky’s State House of Representatives. Her blog, the outhouse: where art goes, combines art with positive thought, and has a growing following. She earned her BA in Art Studio/Photography and Masters in Library and Information Science from the University of Kentucky. Kopana was born and (mostly) raised in Eastern Kentucky, in the county seat of Morgan County, West Liberty. She currently resides in Lexington, KY with one cat that thinks she’s a dog, one cat afraid of dogs, and one stinky awesome dog, Wallace J. Terry.
