Featured Artist: Anna Griffith

The Suzette Brumleve Memorial Effingham Public Library is pleased to showcase the art work of local artist, Anna Griffith.

Anna Griffith has been drawn to art and its many forms from a young age.

“Growing up, our hall closet was bursting at the seams with art and craft supplies. I was always digging around in there, dragging things out and making a mess. A lot of times my mom was right there beside me.”

In school, Anna took as many art classes as she could.  Eventually, Anna studied art at Lake Land College, where she was allowed to experiment with multiple different mediums including drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture, and printmaking.

“I’m a very hands-on person. Creating has always made me happy because I get to work with something physically as well as mentally.”

Anna Griffith’s artwork will be displayed in the Art Gallery until November 1, 2019
