Brian Griffiths

My background is in art and design. I have a degree in Fine Art and a B.Phil. in Landscape Design. I worked as a Landscape Architect for 10 years before starting my career as a furniture maker in 1987. My furniture is inspired by Macintosh and Shaker furniture and Bauhaus.

I have always painted, even from the early age of 5: oils, acrylics but mainly watercolours.

My interest in photography really took off when I acquired a digital camera 5 years ago. My approach to photography is more from a painter’s perspective than straight record shots. I use Photoshop to produce images of how I perceived the view. I regularly have work and exhibit at Parkfields Gallery and the Applestore Gallery.
