Ocie Lee Means started drawing from comics and cartoons as a child. After his collection of pencil drawings on typing paper, he discovered his need to expand his creativity onto a large platform. He chose his bedroom wall! Thinking of his troubles after being told to never draw on the walls, he learned his passion & desire was stronger than his punishments.
Growing up on the South side of Chicago, during the 70's, Ocie had to learn his passions at an early age. Although he considers himself a late bloomer, he had to continue his long, hard road to success!
After 25 years of drawing and painting murals, portraits, abstracts, Ocie was inspired - while driving through the mountains in Georgia - to create artwork in stone.
Ocie is excited to share his talents with the world. He is looking forward to new relationships and opportunities all over the nation.
Wouldn't you like to have an Ocie Lee original in your home, office, church or any venue?
