Anne Griffiths’ studio practice is motivated by the expression of landscape through intuitive knotting of colour and form. By using the landscape as a starting point, her paintings explore interpretations of space, distance and memory. Through gestural line work and an energetic colour palette, Griffiths creates spatial relationships and poetic interpretations that wander through landscapes both speculative and imaginative. She is interested in how we take a feeling of a place away with us in our memory, how that energy can transform by playing with some level of abstraction in the rendering of a traditional landscape.

Anne Griffiths is a Canadian painter with studios in Victoria and Salt Spring Island in British Columbia. She studied painting at Emily Carr University and received a diploma in design and illustration from Capilano University’s IDEA Program (1986), later working as an art director in several of Vancouver’s prominent design firms for over 20 years. Anne’s focus has since shifted to her own painting practice, one that is built upon the interplay of colour and form - delivering interpretive landscape-spaces with a dexterous colour palette. Her work has been exhibited in numerous group and solo shows, as well as having completed several large commissions. In July 2018 she attended a residency on Vancouver Island with Canadian artist Harold Klunder, and continues to expand her practice with intent.
