Proud of East Texas: Monty Graham

By Joan Hallmark

Monty Graham describes himself as a "Cowboy Artist." That's a good description since he's been breaking, training, riding and drawing horses all his life. Although Graham is best known in East Texas for creating Gladewater's limited edition rodeo posters, which have become cherished collectibles, he has a wide background in commercial art and painting.

These days Graham's work is primarily commissioned paintings of prize stallions and mares, which he creates in his combination home/studio outside Gladewater.
