Jamie Means (b. 1972)  Artworks >>

Jamie Means is a western artist. He was recently invited to show his graphite drawings at the 36th Annual C.M. Russell Art Auction held in Great Falls, Montana. Born in Juneau, Alaska in 1972, Means has lived most of his life in Eureka, CA. Without any formal art training, Means focuses on the life and times of the working American cowboy and the emotions of horse and rider. Prior to 2002, Means had never displayed his work. During 2002 and through May of 2003, he was bedridden awaiting back surgery for a work related injury. He spent his time rekindling the love of drawing and began entering works in California county fairs during the summer of 2003. He won "Honorable Mention" at the San Diego County Fair, "Peoples Choice" at the Humboldt County Fair, and "Best of Show" at the Redwood Acres Fair. He lives on a ranch, K & M Quarter Horses, in Red Bluff, California, where he breeds and trains quarter horses. He attends rodeos, visits ranches, and rides the back trails to find subjects for his works. Source askart.com
