Jim Rey

Having grown up in a ranching family, Jim Rey naturally loves working with horses and cattle. His eyes light up when he talks about training his Border Collie or a particularly wary horse, the days he has spent gathering cows in the high country or following a herd of wild horses. Jim's paintings tell the story of cowboys as living remnants of a bygone era. The stories he paints are both his own and those of the people and places he knows and loves.

Mr. Rey's work is collected nationally and internationally. His art has been exhibited in the Fredric Remington Museum in New York, as well as in many noted shows and exhibitions. His paintings have been used by Bantam Books and Encyclopaedia Britannica. Articles have been published in magazines including Southwest Art, Art Of The West, Artists Of The Rockies and International Fine Art Magazine. His work has also been featured in such newspapers as The Denver Post, The Rocky Mountain News, The Durango Herald, The Vail Times and The Aspen Times.

Jim and his wife, Sharon, have recently moved from Southwest Colorado to a farm in the sandhills north of Mitchell, Nebraska, in search of wide open spaces and fewer people. The open plains to the south and east, the Rocky Mountains to the west and the cattle ranges to the north are inspiration for his paintings of life in the American West.
