"Tazewell Morton's world is color, light, and shape.  It blooms from his fingertips in joyous profusion.  He draws, paints and sculpts what' s very real to him outside and inside his head."
His love of the sea and its creatures is obvious, as are his interests in Southeastern Conference football, biblical themes, and food.
He considers gumbo to be a culihary expression of his life, "rich with spice, and madness included."
