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 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 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’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 most recent show was in Miami, Florida at Red Dot and her solo show was with Arcadia in Tyler, Texas. Her work is in many private collections throughout the United States as well as P’s Gallery in Longview and Alex Art International in Sarasota, Florida.
