"As a highly accomplished and internationally collected visual artist and photographer, Ann McGriffin's work invites the viewer into her meditative adventure. Her landscapes are reminiscent of the European Impressionists, warmly textured and subtly romantic, while her portraits and figures are stories in themselves. Often heads are floating as if in a state of levitation. The subjects appear to be suspended ...with hidden secrets to tell or perhaps keep to themselves. Equally proficient in her use of both oil and acrylic, Ms. McGriffin's style has a most appealing cachet. She is certainly an artist to watch."
“Ann McGriffin's style and range of talent as an artist can evoke the desire to plan that Tuscan wine trip you have put off for so long, as she has for me in the many Italian inspired paintings throughout my homes.
Inspired by an ancient tree that will remind you of life’s eternal movement, a chiseled face and its soul’s character, or an orchid captured in the moment before it fades, she will save it with her heart and art. Ann is true art for the love of it and the emotions it will bring back to you.”
"We are so blessed to have one of your works in our home. I look at it every day and it brings peace to my soul. So happy your things are being shown around the world, your work touches the essence of the human spirit."
Dr. Bill Scully, Assistant Principal
Smith-Hale College Preparatory Kansas City, MO
"Your Visionary work just knocks me out! It is all visionary to me; even your landscapes have that mysterious, somewhere there is more, feel to them."
Marah Rohovit Fine Art ~ Salt Lake City, Utah
"Ann is not an naive artist, but a mature one who has mastered her craft. She has a history of producing a consistent body of work that has lead her across the world in her accomplishments. This work comes from an old soul that benefits every project she begins, with rich insight and intelligent means."
