This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Brian Grimm was born in 1968, and like many artists knew at an early age that art was his calling. He was raised on a small farm in central Texas where this focus was not a traditional choice of trade.

Fortuitously Brian was introduced to master wildlife painter, Ken Carlson, who became highly influential on his career. While Brian was in high school, his father fell to cancer, and personal tragedy influenced Brian to remain in Texas to pursue a stable career in commercial art. After seven years, Brian began his pursuit of his fine art career with the encouragement of his wife.

The subjects of his paintings are western wildlife, longhorn cattle, and western landscapes. Brian paints on prepared masonite because the firmness of that ground allows him full expression and confident brush-work. He also does plein-air painting to recreate natural lighting.

Submitted February 2004 by Valisa Grimm, spouse of the artist.

Biography from Whistle Pik Galleries:
Brian Grimm was born in Bastrop, Texas in 1968 and grew up in the small town of Elgin, Texas. His talent was discovered at an early age and the rural farm life was rich with inspiration. Self-motivation was an asset as painting was primarily self-taught. After achieving an art degree in 1992, Brian worked as a graphic designer in Austin. After seven years, he left to pursue a career as a fine art painter. With his love for nature and animals, Brian Grimm focused on wildlife art.

Brian’s love is the rugged western landscape and it’s wildlife. Outdoor studies, en plein aire, are essential in helping to recreate natural lighting and atmosphere. Observing one of Brian’s paintings, it is evident that the landscape is not simply a backdrop for the animal to be framed by, but holds as much prominence as the animal, working together as in nature itself. Painting in oil, prepared masonite allows a firm surface for full expression. Confident, painterly brushwork is a hallmark. Noted influences on Brian’s work include representational artists such as Wiilhelm Kuhnert, Carl Rungius and Clyde Aspevig, but the works of painter Ken Carlson influenced Brian early, and he credits Ken for giving patient critiques during the early years of his career.

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 lives with his wife and two sons in Fredericksburg, Texas. He makes frequent trips throughout the U.S. for reference and for shows.

Outdoor studies, en plein air, are essential to him in helping to recreate natural lighting and atmosphere.  Painting in oil on prepared hardboard allows a firm surface for full expression.

Noted influences on Brian's work include representational artistis such as Wilhelm Kuhnert, Carl Rungius and Clyde Aspevig, but the works of painter Ken Carlson influenced Brian early, and he credits Ken for his patient critiques thru the years.
