ABOUT THE ARTIST
Rene Griffith's Biography
Born in Panama, Rene grew up in a small coastal Florida town where she married, later divorced, and raised three children while attending college. Her love of travel and art led Rene to California in the mid 1990’s, where she secured an art studio at Hunter’s Point Shipyard in San Francisco so that she could pursue her dream of becoming an artist. The preponderance of museums and galleries available in the city was new to her and exposed her to dozens of established and emerging artists. Living in this city afforded Rene an unparalleled opportunity to enrich her understanding of art, learn new techniques, and expand her talents. Over the next 10 years Rene immersed herself in her art work exploring photography, painting, and collage. To read more about her creative processes, click here.
Rene Griffith is an artist and visual storyteller who creates images that evoke memories, feelings, and the appreciation of beauty found everywhere. Inspired by a lifelong fascination with abstract shapes such as cast shadows, reflections, silhouettes, clouds, and colors, she paints to capture the essence of a place or to convey her thoughts and feelings.
Since returning to Florida in 2006, Rene has worked out of her home studio in Indialantic where she continues to study and grow as an artist. She has shown her work in solo and group exhibitions and in galleries in California, South Carolina, and Florida. She has been featured in numerous local magazines and Florida Today newspaper articles. To read more about her exhibitions and education, click here.
