Noe Perez

Noe Perez grew up in Falfurrias, TX. "My dad was a cowboy, and worked area South Texas ranches wherever his help was needed. I used to follow him whenever I could, spending long hours immersed in and observing the brush country native to this area. After earning a bachelor degree in engineering, I went to work and started painting again in my spare time. Most recently, I have attended workshops with Ron Rencher and Michael Workman. I really enjoy plein air painting and pursue the practice whenever I can. I feel that is the best way to study the landscape and bring that knowledge to my studio paintings.

One of the reasons I am drawn to this area is because its beauty is not immediately apparent. I have to paint here because this is where I live; it is what I know best. By attempting to capture the essence of this landscape, I hope to honor not just the landscape, but also the people that make this area their home."

Noe's work is in many private and public collections across the country. Noe's work is included in the book, Texas Traditions-Contemporary Artists of the Lone Star State published in 2010. In

January 2013, his work was included in the show Restless Hearts: Contemporary Texas Regionalism at the San Angelo Museum of Art. Noe's work is represented by William Reaves Fine Art in Houston, Texas.
