"My work strongly reflects the influences of my upbringing in the deep rural South. It illustrates an abiding interest that I’ve had since childhood in the processes of nature and the inner-connectiveness of the many aspects of the natural environment. My university training was in biology. I have always been fascinated and deeply moved by the wonders of nature, and ever since the youngest years of my life I have spent countless hours and days studying my natural surroundings. Through that, I developed a uniquely personal way of categorizing and illustrating the processes and components of life -- 'Intertwangleism'."
Inter = to mix
