Biography

Sharon Grimes is a self-taught contemporary abstract artist from Longview, Texas whose art is a personal expression of all the textures and layers of life. Inspired by nature and the universe, her work typically features vivid colors and vibrant energy and is consistently characterized by a strong composition, contrast, and texture. These characteristics demonstrate her remarkable understanding of color and composition. Her work has been described by Sara Eyestone, curator at La Posada de Santa Fe and Spa, as a “feast for the eyes.”

Grimes was a 2014 Hunting Art Prize finalist and is a member of the Southwestern Society of Watercolor Artist. Her paintings have been in several group exhibitions including the East Texas Regional Art Exhibit at Longview Museum of Fine Arts. Her art is also exhibited in many public and private collections throughout the United States.


Artist Statement

“The creation of art is a meditation for me. It is a reflection of my heart onto the surface.

I gain inspiration from nature and specifically the effect of light. I watch the sun as it sets to see the color it creates and the way the light peeks around the clouds.

My work represents the language of the soul. I strive to evoke a sense of mystery and beauty in each piece.

I begin a painting by creating texture. I then work in layers of translucent acrylic paint on a wood panel. This creates depth and allows the viewer to see back several layers into the painting. I rarely know exactly where the piece is going in the beginning. I start working and let intuition and the work itself lead me.”
