 Maurine Griffin (1904-1944)

Painter.  Born in St Paul, Minnesota on December 12, 1904.  When Maurine was a child, the Griffin family moved to southern California and settled on a ranch near the San Fernando Mission.  After graduating from high school, she studied at Otis Art Institute and with Conrad Buff at his studio in Eagle Rock.  She worked briefly in Los Angeles for the Evening Herald as a fashion illustrator before her marriage to Albert Sanders.  The couple had a second home in Cathedral City near Palm Springs where Maurine was active in the local art colony.  Mrs. Sanders died in Los Angeles of tuberculosis on July 28, 1944.  Her rare paintings were done with a colorful palette, especially orange and yellow.
