Meet Candice Rex.
Washington state based abstract artist, Candice Rex, has developed her skills in Abstract Expressionism, contemporary and modern art for over twenty years. Her work is inspired by her passion for healing, growth, connection, and empathy.
Creating art has always been a significant influence on her life. As a child and young adult, art served her in leisure to communicate and release. While these original purposes have endured, art's meaning has elevated to that of absolute necessity in her adult life. Art has provided a spiritual compass, emotional catharsis, satiated the intangible and helped smooth life's rough edges. Every piece of art she has created has also enabled her to develop herself. She invites you to join through her art as she continues her emotional, visual, and tactile exploration.
She uses her artwork to spread awareness of Dystonia, a rare neuromuscular disease that has affected her personally for the last ten years. Dystonia is a movement disorder in which a person's muscles contract uncontrollably. The contraction causes the affected body part to twist involuntarily, resulting in repetitive movements or abnormal postures. Dystonia can affect one muscle, a muscle group, or the entire body. There is currently no cure for Dystonia. Candice shows her support and graciously donates a portion of each art sale to Dystonia Research.
