Biography

Rene Griffith is a multi-faceted artist who often uses photographs, collage, and paint in her artwork. Her collages are created with paint, torn papers from vintage and modern magazines, photographs, maps, and other memorabilia. Her paintings are constructed of many layers of paint and will often include graphite, wax crayon, charcoal, colored pencil, and pastels. Interior spaces come alive with her colorful and exciting artwork. Rene is an artist and visual storyteller who creates images that evoke memories and feelings from the beauty she discovers in the world around her. Inspired by a lifelong fascination with abstract shapes and colors, she paints to capture the essence of a place in order to convey her thoughts and feelings. Her mixed-media art is often reminiscent of an earlier era yet is also unmistakably contemporary, intending to create modern art filled with layers of history and texture.

Griffith works in her home studio in Indialantic. 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 magazine and newspaper articles including the San Francisco Chronicle and Florida Today. Griffith’s paintings and photographs are included in many private and corporate collections such as ABC's Scandal TV series and Marshall Fields Corporate collection in Chicago. Her mixed-media work is represented by Koman Fine Art in Vero Beach, FL and Big Art Now Gallery (BANG!) in Palm Beach, FL. Griffith is one of only two artists whose work was featured by the Foosaner Art Museum in Melbourne, FL from March 20 through June 19, 2021.
