Sharon Grimes, from Texas, is a self-taught contemporary abstract artist whose art is a personal expression of life, with all its textures and layers.
Inspired by nature and the universe, her work typically features vivid colors and vibrant energy and is consistently characterized by strong composition, contrast and texture, which demonstrate her remarkable understanding of color and composition.
Sharon Grimes first became interested in art at a young age.
She grew up loving to sketch people, animals and her surroundings.
In her early twenties, her passion for art blossomed as she was inspired by the many galleries and museums she frequented in London while living abroad for a year.
Sharon Grimes was a 2014 Hunting Art Prize finalist. Her work has been described by Sara Eyestone, artist, writer and curator of La Posada de Santa Fe and Spa, as a “feast for the eyes”.
Sharon Grimes’s paintings have been exhibited in group exhibitions, including RW Norton Gallery Group Show in Shreveport, LA and the Kilgore Art Festival in Kilgore, Texas. Her work has also been exhibited in Miami, Florida at Red Dot and a solo show with Arcadia in Tyler, Texas.
In 2021, her works were presented in Barcelona, Spain as part of a group exhibition. Her paintings are actually exhibited in our Showroom in Collioure, South of France.
Her work is in many private collections throughout the United States as well as in Europe.
