Griffey began developing her own painting abilities in 2007 shortly after retiring from teaching art.  She started with a mural project for the chapel of Neal-Tarpley-Parchman Funeral Home, which led to many more public and private projects.

Her series of historical Clarksville scenes led to a partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters for a fundraising calendar that is produced each year. To date, she has donated her work to more than 20 churches and non-profit organizations for fundraisers.

The Planters Bank-Hilldale Gallery is located at 1971 Madison Street. The Griffey exhibit is open to the public from Thursday, July 5th through Wednesday, August 1st during regular bank hours: 8:30am-4:00pm, Monday-Thursday and 8:30am-5:30pm, Friday.
