Pamela Griffith is an artist whose work follows a great tradition, the tradition of craftsmanship and technical excellence which she applies to her decidedly contemporary work. In painting, drawing, printmaking and design she strives for work which is both artistically satisfying and technically masterful. In recent years she has become one of Sydney's more successful artists. Not a household name perhaps, but a painter and printmaker with a large and loyal following.

She has worked professionally in the arts for more than three decades, producing a vast body of work which has found its way into public and private collections in many parts of the world. She studied first at the National Art School and then at Sydney Teachers College, graduating from College in 1964. She has exhibited her work in countless group and individual exhibitions.

Images of the natural world contrast to scenes of domesticity in still life compositions. Her striving for a sense of place has come to the fore in her most recent etchings. She places vignettes and frames within the larger compositions of her bird and botanical subjects, playing off the detailed with the overall, the microscopic and the majestic. Pamela has used the form of the 18th century naturalist's illustration, weaving a composition from many disparate parts. Giant mangrove trees contrast with the insects and birds which live in them and tiny butterflies from an impenetrable mass of jungle. The etchings can stand both distant and intimate viewing. The fineness of their working makes them ideal in the confines of a narrow corridor, while their strong overall composition also allows them to work from across a large room. They are works which can find a home in many environments, the domestic, the commercial and the institutional.
