This biography from the Archives of AskART:

Hambone (b. 1956)

Hambone is a totally self-taught Creole Choctaw who grew up in the bayou country of Louisiana. His characters and stories depict the colorful and rich history of the Deep South and one is sure to find the memories in his works. Simple and unpretentious, colorful and humorous, when viewing Hambone's paintings, you cannot help but smile as you are taken back to your childhood memories of the life and people you love and cherish. His humor will remind you of those who have made up your life's experience and the love they show for each other will surely take you home.

He is considered a "memory painter", meaning that he paints from memory and through his imagination of the life he knows.  When he has an idea for a theme, he starts painting directly to the canvas, without pre-drawing.
