Brian Grimm was born in Bastrop, Texas in 1968 and grew up in the small town of Elgin, Texas. With a rural farm life rich with inspiration, his talent was discovered at an early age. After achieving an art degree in 1992, he worked as a graphic designer in Austin. After seven years, he began to pursue a career in fine art.
Outdoor studies are essential to him in helping to recreate natural lighting and atmosphere. Painting in oil, prepared hardboard allows a firm surface for full expression. Confident, painterly brushwork is a hallmark of Brian’s work.
Always seeking artistic excellence, Brian continues to push the boundaries of his vision. He strives to further his approach to color harmony, design and form while remaining true to his distinct expression. Brian makes frequent trips throughout North America for reference and distinctive shows. He has been featured in numerous publications including: Art of the West, Southwest Art and Western Art and Architecture. Brian lives with his wife and two sons in Fredericksburg, Texas.
