Jeri Griffith came to the Boston area in 1998 after a stint in Austin, Texas, but her childhood was spent in Wisconsin. These disparate places each feel like separate countries to her, with landscapes, seasons, and ways of being that influence both her art and her identity. Jeri creates images on canvas and on paper that represent her worldview and her sense of the spiritual. Painting is her greatest love, but drawing is a specialty. She also uses her imagery to create videos. For inspiration, she draws on her training in life drawing as well as her love for ancient and indigenous art. She has traveled extensively, especially in Central and South America. She is a published writer and an amateur musician who loves improvising at the piano.
