Wayne Baize

Wayne Baize showed an interest in art since his school days in Hamlin, Texas. In the early '70s, Wayne began making trips out to the Davis Mountains near Fort Davis, where he gathered material for his drawing by taking photographs on the 06 Ranch and other ranches throughout the area.  He depicts the contemporary cowboy and gives honor to the cowboy way of life.  He prefers to paint Hereford cattle because facial expressions are more visible, but his favorite subjects are his horses.

Wayne joined the Cowboy Artists of America (CAA) in 1995, and he has won awards around the country through the years.  He received the Western Artist of the Year from the Academy of Western Artists in 2000, and in 2004 he won the American Cowboy Culture Award for Western Art.  He was awarded the CAA silver medal in drawing in 2007.  His paintings and drawings have graced the covers of several horse and cattle magazines including The Quarter Horse Journal, Western Horsemen, and the Texas Hereford.

Wayne and his wife, Ellen, live on their ranch outside Fort Davis, Texas, and raise registered Hereford cattle.  The couple has four grown children, who are often seen in Wayne’s paintings. 

Wayne’s art is represented by the Trailside Galleries in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, and Scottsdale, Arizona, as well as the Midland Gallery in Midland, Texas.
