Bio: GRIS GRIMLY can be best described as a storyteller. His distinctive style and wide selection of mediums have captivated a variety of loyal fine art collectors. Originally recognized for his dark yet humorous illustrations for young readers, Mr. Grimly's interpretive visions have now captured the attention and recognition for his full resume of work.

Gris Grimly's intricate lines and startling layouts combined with an exceptional use of carefully controlled watercolor and ink washes brought him to the attention of high-profile publishers such as Hyperion Press, Chronicle Books, Harper Collins, Simon & Schuster, and Scholastic.

Over the past decade, Gris Grimly's age old desire to tell unique stories has reached a worldwide audience. His talents can now be appreciated in over a dozen best selling books. This includes his personal writing/illustrating in the Wicked Nursery Rhymes series and Little Jordan Ray's Muddy Spud. He has also been paired with such classic and contemporary authors as Neil Gaiman on The Dangerous Alphabet, Washington Irving on The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow and Edgar Allan Poe on Tales of Mystery and Madness. In addition, Gris is constructing a follow up to the acclaimed Tales of Mystery and Madness and a third installment for the Wicked Nursery Rhymes series.

His work has appeared in the leading arts journal, Spectrum: The Best in Contemporary Fantastic Art. He has been honored twice by the Society of Illustrators and has been included in the Society's 2004 and 2005 exhibits on The Fine Art of Children's Book Illustration.

His work has been recognized and honored by such prestigious institutions as The Edward Gorey House and The Edgar Allan Poe Museum.
