Biography of Patricia A Griffin

Patricia A Griffin’s vibrant compositions are a contemporary manifestation of humanity’s earliest muse. Her oil paintings of animals on linen, burn slowly as they stir the mind into daydreams of travel and encounters with exotic and indigenous beings. Griffin goes to great lengths to study, photograph and sketch her kinetic subjects. She utilizes subject matter as a testing ground for concepts of color, value, and structure. The works are portals into poetic and psychological content and drift into wordless fantasy.

Griffin spent the past 33 years as a professional artist painting, teaching, and traveling. Her work has brought her International recognition and shown in 15 museums. Patricia’s images can be found in collections from Dallas to Dubai. She has exhibited in 18 Solo Exhibitions, and over 180 Group Exhibitions.

Born in Philadelphia Pa. in 1967. Graduate with BFA from Moore College of Art and Design,1989, Philadelphia, Pa. Griffin maintains studios in the Teton Mountains, Wy. and Pocono Mountains, Pa.

Artist’s Statement

I recognize my existence as universal and connected to the farthest reaches of conception.

I am devoted to creating images with the intent of stirring stewardship, that captivate the viewer in a joyful moment of presence.

The time I spend in the habitat of my subjects is critical.

It is here that our existence is shared.

I draw from these experiences.

Layers of paint are applied in veils to linen.

The energy of oil color moves the eye and Animals exist in the vibration of pigment.
