Griffith's paintings reflect the human spirit, in all its varied
manifestations and emphasizing private moments of personal
intimacy. Each instance reflects an emotional complexity of life,
often revealed in subtle posture and gesture.

Portraying the human spirit has been my
passion for over 40 years, and
I have worked in various media to
express what I see and feel. Rather than become overly distraught
over inhuman violence and politics, I focus on the hope inherent
Occasionally I work with more
extreme stylistic appriaches, but most often I return to a representational tone, as reflected in these images...
These paintings are taken from the
figurative portion of my collection, and represent a mixture of work from live
drawings, sketches, and photographs, many from abroad. I experience the
universality of human experience, in all its beauty and magic, as well as its more
raw states, and these are the kind of qualities I attempt to convey in my paintings.
I work at my studio at Hunters’ Point,
where I follow my muse and have shown only at Open Studios for two
decades. I have had paintings included in several competitions
around California, but have not made an attempt to publicize my art
and have not actively marketed my work in the past. Just now these paintings are becoming available for purchase.
