This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Joe Trakimas (1969-)

Born in Toms River, New Jersey August of 1969, he was raised in the small town of Denton, Maryland.  At a young age, Joe became enamored with primitive living and the native people that had inhabited the land of the past.  He began making his own traditional archery equipment and this is when his interests reached a new level.  As he researched the making of bows and arrows of the Native Americans, his fascination with their culture and lifestyle grew.  He became especially interested in the Plains Indians.

As a high school senior he received the Maryland distinguished scholarship.  After graduating from Towson State University in 1996 with a degree in art, he came to Montana to pursue this interest and paint the rolling plains, expansive sky and its people.  Montana gave him an endless supply of winding rivers snaking through pine filled mountains, forgotten barns situated in a sage filled prairie and abundant wildlife to paint and admire.  His primary focus was the negative space created from the branches and foliage of the ponderosa pine and cottonwood trees.  

Joe Trakimas' work is somewhat painterly and textured. The subject matter he is best known for are landscapes and figurative works.  He participated in the Yellowstone Art Museum auction and the Charles M.Russell art auction to benefit those museums.
