This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Springfield, Ohio, Conway Griffith is known for landscape and some marine painting.  He was raised in a cultured family, and both he and his brother, Armand Harrold Conway became recognized artists.

At age 17, Conway went to New York City and became a student of William Merritt Chase and Wayne Gifford, and then for several years, he taught a special method of china painting on the faculty at the Cincinnati School of Design.  However, problems with his health took him West in the 1890s. 

In Denver where he lived on a cattle ranch, he studied landscape painting, and also made trips to Mexico and California in 1898, moving to Southern California permanently in 1904.

He lived on Catalina Island the first two years and then settled in Laguna Beach where he was active with the Laguna Beach Art Association and given the title as "one of the founders of the Art Colony of the Beach." (Falk, 1378)
