ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

 Baron Rinehart Wilson is an Austin artist and architectural illustrator. He is a native of Midland, Texas and is a descendant of the American sculptor William Henry Rinehart (1825 USA-1874 Italy).

Baron began drawing and painting as a young child. He studied both fine art and architectural design while in college. In 1983 he earned an Associate of Art degree at Midland College and earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree at Texas Tech University in 1986.

In 1998, Baron opened Studio B Architectural Illustration & Design in Austin, Texas where he quickly built a practice in the field of architectural presentations. In 2002, Stephanie joined Studio B to begin the promotion and marketing of the Fine Art pieces also produced by Baron Wilson Fine Art.

Baron's conceptual architectural designs and illustrations have been featured in Resort & Hospitality projects from the Bahamas and Cape Verde Islands to North Africa and Latin America. His collaboration with award winning architectural firms has produced work on projects in Saudi Arabia, India and China as well as throughout the Caribbean.

Baron's extensive training in the architecture profession has refined his attention to detail in his artwork and has contributed to the realism in his drawings, paintings and renderings. Recent paintings are the evidence of combining drawing and draftsmanship, becoming the basis for his strong graphic compositions.

Baron produces fine works of art that utilize a variety of mediums from graphite and colored pencil to watercolor, gouache, acrylic & oil paintings on paper and canvas. Subjects range from Texas regional landscapes, still life, abstracts and Austin architectural landmarks.

Highlights of Baron’s career include a commemorative montage painting that is on permanent display in Dongying, the People’s Republic of China. Baron also produced an architectural rendering for the film “Office Space”. His artwork is exhibited in the corporate collections of Time Warner Cable, Ernst & Young, LLP, Wild Basin Wilderness, Inc. and NationsBank. A large painting depicting the historic Driskill Hotel in Austin is part of the hotel's permanent collection. Baron’s art is also displayed in numerous private collections.
