Sharon Grimes 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.
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.
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."
Grimes' paintings have been exhibited in group exhibitions, including the East Texas
Regional Art Exhibit at Longview Museum of Fine Arts, P's Gallery Regional Art exhibit,
and the Tyler Museum of Art. Her most recent solo show, titled Written in the Stars, was
in Texarkana, Texas, hosted by the Texarkana Regional Arts and Humanities Council. In
2017 Grimes exhibited at Longview Museum of Fine Art and judged the 57th annual Student
