Rex concentrates primarily on landscapes and figurative painting and especially enjoys southwest themes. He tries to depict a mood from a setting that he personally embraces and that evokes emotions of serenity and nostalgia.
His original interpretation of painting leans toward realistic impressionism. His works are primarily done in acrylic, watercolor and pastels.
He began painting at an early age and studied under the renowned Texas artist, Tom Lea and also Robert Massey, although he is mostly self-taught. He has also freelanced in commercial art.
He spent most of his working life in the corporate business world with little time to paint and only recently dedicated himself to becoming a full-time painter.
Rex’s work can be found in private collections in the United States as well as Europe. The Dutch Art Gallery carries a variety of his work.
