In the Art Bar: Colette Griffith

Visit our Art Bar for refreshments and local art!

Colette Griffith is our featured artist for December.

Originally from Hollywood, California, Colette Griffith moved to the Skagit Valley 12 years ago. The things she loves about living here are the very things that made her start watercolor painting: seeing bald eagles, owls, great blue herons or cows with their calves when driving down a country road. The breath-taking scenery and the old barns and wood-fences provide her with endless inspiration.

“I think I’ve always loved creating art, whether it be making papier-mache animals (for Skagit Symphony’s performance of Peter and Wolf), designing Tiffany style stained glass lamps, sewing quilts, putting together wedding bouquets, or using the age-old formal style of copperplate calligraphy. But my current passions are watercolors and colored pencil and pastel art … especially capturing amazing images of the great Pacific Northwest.”
