Artist CV 2008

Esther Griffiths


I am an enthusiastic printmaker, painter, and illustrator. My Christian faith is central to my life, and is layered throughout my work. Much of my artwork focuses on childhood memory and biblical femininity. I spent my entire childhood enjoying the close-knit communities of rural Northland and Waikato towns, and shifted to Whangarei in 2007 to pursue my love of art. I am currently studying for my Bachelor of Applied Arts at Northland Polytechnic, and am exploring the world of children’s book illustration.
