James Reaves

Reaves Studio
Thousand Oaks, CA

Captivated by the lure of the American west since childhood, James Reaves found solace in the memories of watching Rawhide and riding his rocking horse into the sunset. The yearning for the "wild and woolly" days of the past left a void in his heart that could only be filled by his art. Through each brush stroke, he transports himself back to the days of spurs jingling, gun shots whistling, and Bronco busting, immortalizing the history of "The Wild West" in his paintings and pastels. Reaves aims to capture the vibrant action of Cowboys, Indians, and Bronc riders in his contemporary compositions, using strong colors to emphasize the vitality of the west.

In an effort to satiate his creative hunger, Reaves expanded his artistic repertoire to encompass any form that serves as his muse. He constantly adds new pieces to his collection, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in his re-invention of our heritage. Different configurations of his work are available, including mugs, larger or smaller pieces, and cards. For inquiries or purchases, interested individuals can contact Reaves directly via email at reaves27@verizon.net.

For those looking to bring a touch of the American west into their homes or offices, Reaves' prints offer a unique and vibrant addition to any space. Embrace the spirit of the Wild West through his dynamic compositions and vivid colors, and experience a piece of history re-imagined for the modern world.
