Jimmy Devine, a native of Brooklyn, New York, graduated from Rocky Mountain College in Montana. Devine has worked as a fashion artist, television art director, sports illustrator, and now paints cowboys from old west legend and lore. Devine has received awards and recognition through Western Art Shows, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. "After years of illustrating, I’m enjoying painting old west scenes, in a realist style with attention to details in mid-nineteenth century cowboy gear. Devine’s favorite subjects are the old west cowboy, lawmen, and cowboy musicians of the era - depicted in everyday scenes of cowboy life. The opportunity to transport someone back in American History is the inspiration that drives him to paint.
