Annie Griffeth is a multi-faceted artist who combines magical realism with illustrative representation. Her pieces are narrative-driven covering social issues and transformative life events, as well as everyday joys and challenges.
Annie creates ink drawings and acrylic and oil paintings on paper, canvas, and wood. She also creates a collection of sparkling crystal and rhinestone artworks every Christmas.
Annie is one of the four Resident Artists at the ALG Collective, a multi-artist studio and showroom located in the heart of the Design District in Dallas, Texas. She creates and shows her work at the ALG's 1302 Dragon Street location alongside fellow artists and founding members Anna Curnes, of Anna Lou Glass, Melissa Ellis, of Melissa Ellis Art, and Christi Meril of Christi Meril Art.
Annie loves her community and volunteers her time, talents, and resources to various organizations throughout Dallas. In 2019, she and her husband were Gala Co-Chairs for Equest's record-breaking, Arabian Nights-themed gala. Together, with the support of the Dallas community, they raised nearly $400,000 for the non-profit to rehabilitate veterans and children through equestrian facilitated therapies.
In 2020, Annie and her studio mates took the helm as the Art Chairs for Dwell with Dignity's biggest fundraiser of the year, Thrift Studio.
They organized and hosted a competitive artist's call, recruiting renowned artist and owner of the Ferrari Gallery, Debra Ferrari, to curate. The curated art and designer teams were revealed at DwD's annual Art in Color party, which Annie and her studio mates sponsored and hosted at their studio and showroom, the ALG Collective.
Despite a tumultuous and uncertain year, 2020's Thrift Studio went on to break its previous fundraising records, expanding DwD's reach to more families in the DFW area.
In addition to art and community projects, Annie is a volunteer teacher at Jubilee Community Center's continued education summer camp, teaching art to grades K-8.
Annie has two cats, Princess Cutie Pie and Cheeseburger, and lives with her husband in Dallas, Texas. Annie likes to travel, read, do yoga, and dance.
