From childhood, Nature provided an enduring sense of mystery, wonder and belonging that continue to inspire all of Judith Ann Griffith's work.

When she was three years old, Judith began exploring the countrysidesurrounding her home in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

After graduating from college with a major in Illustration, Judith worked atHallmark for 5 years, then left to free-lance and take private commissions.

She finally settled in Arkansas where for 30 years she worked with Sunrise Publications, creating Christmas cards, designing collector Santas andAngels, gift bags, stationery, tableware, throws, and other home decor. Judith illustrated a children's book, designed stained glass windows for private homes and churches, Christmas decor, and a Nativity.

Since 1980, she has been creating heirloom vegetable drawings for the Seed Savers Exchange.
