Texas Artists Coalition - Artist Spotlight

Featured Artist: Sharon Grimes

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 Art Exhibition.
