This is a place to shine some light on my fellow artist friends, heartfelt causes, and local events of interest.


India Cruse-Griffin

Mixed-Media Artist


India L. Cruse-Griffin, Artist Educator, is a graduate of Ball State University where she majored in Art. India began her Art Career early in life when she began painting life around her. Even as a child her works were alive and brilliant with color. As time and life experiences changed her, she began to analyze her work. Remembering the love she had for her warm surroundings, India began to recall her childhood memories, which she paints today.


During this transformation, color and texture became and integral part of her art. She wants the viewer to feel and see the depth of her experiences as well as the people in her life, which lead to her unique style. Her life-long love of her family and community drives this artist to create art that is both common and uncommon to most, and enjoyed by all.


A true inspiration to and supporter of Ryan Thalls Creative. Please check her out!
