This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in India of English parents on Oct. 5, 1885. Raised in England, Whiffin was taught to paint by a local artist who took him to Italy for further study. By 1912 he had immigrated to California. While painting in Yosemite in that year, he met a local girl and was married there. During this period he was often a painting partner of Charles H. Harmon. In 1927 the Whiffins moved to the Monterey Peninsula where they established import shops in Carmel and in the Del Monte Hotel. He often accompanied fellow Englishman, William Adam, on painting trips. His paintings and pen-and-ink sketches of historical buildings were reproduced on postcards and stationery from 1925. In 1931 Whiffin moved to Alameda on San Francisco Bay. He taught night school in Alameda and exhibited in outdoor art shows at the San Francisco Civic Center. During the last ten years of his life he painted prolifically in California from Palm Springs to Yosemite. His subjects include landscapes, marines, garden and farm scenes. Whiffin died in Alameda on Feb. 28, 1951. Exh: Carmel AA; Bay Region AA, 1935.
