Born in Indiana, Griffith’s family moved to the Dallas area, where he started to develop his art skills under the tutelage of landscape artist Frank Reaugh. He received a formal education from the St. Louis School and Museum of Fine Arts. Afterwards, he moved to Chicago and studied at the Art Institute of Chicago. Griffith also found commercial success in Chicago. Griffith took up printmaking during his travels to England and France. He later joined the Palette and Chisel Club. Eventually he settled in Brown County, Indiana, where he painted his best known works. His impressionistic landscapes of western Texas and Brown County are highly sought-after.
