Born in Melbourne, Australia, the painter is based in Wellington, New Zealand.
Her work features an allegorical edge. Figurative and surreal.
"...The freshness of Something Else - besides Sally Griffin's lovely,
expressionist illustrations at the head of each chapter - is that it tells a story
from our recent history that has seldom been told: the death of all those lush,
hippy dreams in the arid, consumerist wasteland of the 21st century. The abiding image
is that of good-hearted Troon who has lived through it all, out there as climate change
and sea levels rise, doing what he knows best: keeping the ocean out of the boat."
