Artist Lyle Omeasoo

Lyle James Omeasoo, an Ermineskin Tribal Member, was born June 24, 1971, in Browning Montana, to Ferdinand and Maybelle Omeasoo. He is a graduate of Browning High School. Lyle began drawing when he was a small child. His art education consists of high school art classes in which he learned various media including the art of airbrush painting. Mr. Omeasoo's subject matter ranges from early First Nation camp scenes to major sports figures. Sports can be a major social event on the First Nations where the young people participate and take seriously.Lyle's style of painting borders on photo-realism. He captures colors, brightness, and action that evoke sensationalism and burst into the viewer's eyes, making the paintings seem surreal and alive with motion. Lyle's interest in sports is evident. He participated in three State of Montana cross-country championships while in High School. His interest in traditional First Nation culture lies with his grand parents. Today, Lyle works as a certified electrician. He is married to Anna Calf Robe, and the have three children, Marcus, Vince, and Mariah.
