My Inspiration

Being in the wilderness has always been a form of meditation for me. My childhood home backed up to an enormous old growth forest where I would walk my dog everyday after school. This effortless meditation started during these walks. Spending time in the woods became a way for me to let go of any stresses of the day. 

As I got older and entered high school, life got busy and I found myself craving those moments alone in nature. I took up photography as a way to prioritize that time again. By capturing the beautiful scenery of Kodiak Island, I realized I could bring those treasured moments of quiet meditation into my everyday life. I decorated my bedroom with the photos to kindle tranquil feelings when I didn't have time to go outside.

Years later, when I started Griffing Designs, I realized I could share the calming feelings that nature brings me through selling photography prints and photo products. I set a positive and peaceful intention with every photo I take in hopes that this energy is transferred to my customers. My photo products help bring the serenity of nature into your every day life through practical items. If you have a particular location or photo that brings you peace I would love to work with you on a custom order.
