Rene Griffith always knew she wanted to be an artist and had an unstoppable curiosity about the world around her. At the age of 12 she received her first Brownie camera and began staging and photographing scenes to tell her stories. In 6th grade she sold her first painting (a watercolor of a pelican) for $5 and her dream of becoming an artist was reinforced.
Rene lives and works in Indialantic, Florida. Her studio is open to the public by appointment only.
My artwork reflects my varied interests and my desire to explore new ways to tell a visual story. It's exciting for me to bring together my photography and my love of painting in a new way by creating mixed-media paintings that are reminiscent of an earlier era yet are also unmistakably contemporary. In the mid 2000's, I began stretching myself even further artistically by painting abstracts on large canvases.
