It’s hard to put Rex Spencer into just one category. An interior design instructor at The Art Institute of Houston since 2003, Rex has created many opportunities for students to learn outside the classroom, providing the framework to become successful leaders in their field upon graduation. And with a Masters degree in architecture from the University of Houston and and an undergraduate degree in Music 🎶 from Baylor, Rex understands what it takes to transform an environment from the inside out.  Clients appreciate his versatility and admire his ability to creat exciting and beautiful spaces, with attention to details in Lighting and Acoustics. 

As being an interior designer wasn’t enough, he has traveled all over the world, taking images of interiors. But it was in his own town of Houston that he focused his lens on for his book called “Houston By Design”.  Celebrating a myriad of inspiring interiors by local designers and architects. Rex proved Houston-based designers were on par with those in New York, LA,
London or Paris.

A passionate lover of the arts, Rex turned his camera onto ballet dancers in the exhibition of “ How Do You Know the Dancer from the
Dance?”- a gallery show that  celebrates dancers in Laser Lighting was shown both in Stockholm and Houston.
