About the Artist
Monica GriffinMonica Griffin is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Los Angeles. Her work has evolved greatly since the start of the pandemic as she began spending a lot of time exploring California’s landscapes. “In the Wild” is a series rooted in learning about fragility and gratitude. In her process, she scouts a location and paints a large scale canvas depicting the feeling or mood inspired by that place. She then returns to the location with the painting and photographs it. She feels this is the most holistic way to view and enjoy her work. Her goal is ultimately to evoke an appreciation and feeling of synergy with our world.
