Kate Griffin

As a child, growing up in a small village in Gloucestershire, I always wanted to travel.

When I grew up, off I went, with my camera.

Griffin: a newcomer to the Orient, esp. one from W. Europe [C18 of unknown origin].

You can see some of the pictures I’ve taken in the travels section, sometimes with an extract from a book I was reading while on the road.

For a number of years I found myself following in the footsteps of the nineteenth century botanical artist Marianne North, reading her journal, Recollections of a Happy Life, and taking my own pictures.

You can see my pictures of day-to-day life on instagram here.
