Jim Rey

“I’ve seen what hard work and diligence does, both in art and on the range.” - Jim Rey

Born and raised in northern California, Jim Rey’s keen interest in ranch life was fueled by his grandfather and uncle, both cattle ranchers.

Although his subject matter primarily focuses on the equine, Rey often paints the cowboy and the ranching experience. He strives to take a thought and bring his own way of looking at things into a final image, demonstrating visually what he cares about. However, the common denominator in all his work is his lifelong love of the horse.

Rey has had the good fortune to have been a professional painter for over 45 years. His works are frequently exhibited in museums, and several now hang in their permanent collections. He has been featured in most major art magazines and has been commissioned by Bantam Books for Louis L’Amour short story collections and novels. His paintings are collected nationally and internationally.
