Description The first in my new series of paintings called 'I Vampiri' (which is Italian for The Vampires) - a new line of paintings that feature vampire beauties inspired by Italian Baroque & Italian Renaissance themes and aesthetics. This first painting is called 'I Vampiri: Bellissimo Letto' (which means 'the beautiful bed) and it is a BEAUTY! This really is a gorgeous painting - a vampiress in her Renaissance finery - standing in front of an ornate bed and clutching a goblet. At first it may appear to simply be a lovely noblewoman, but upon closer inspection you may notice the hint of a bloody disturbance in the background - are those bloodstained handprints on the wall? Are those pearly fangs at her lips? And what is that mysterious red fluid in her chalice? Hmmm.... This is a LUSH painting - the subtle sfumato paired with the deep jeweltones really makes this piece special. My own original acrylic painting.
Jasmine Becket-Griffith, Celebration, Florida Member Since October 2008 Artist Statement My name is Jasmine Becket-Griffith. (Aka Strangeling or mis-spelled as Jasmine Beckett-Griffith). I am 29 years old and I live in beautiful Celebration, Florida. I am a full-time artist and I make my living selling my artwork. I have been selling my original Fairy, Gothic, and Fantasy artwork online since 1997.
I grow weary of the mundane world, and I am trying to slowly create my own through my fantasy artwork. I believe that with each piece of art I get out of my system, onto paper, and into your home I have done my part to make this place a more magical planet.
You may have seen my artwork featured in new lines of clothing and other merchandise being sold in thousands of retail stores across the country, in places like Hot Topic, Torrid, Target, SuperTarget, Hastings, Busch Gardens, Disneyland Paris, the Bradford Exchange, Hamilton Collection, and other stores throughout the country! Some of the paintings that I am selling here on ImageKind are the very images that will be licensed for these products. Here is your chance to own the actual artwork!
My work can be found in collections and galleries throughout the world, and am featured in the books "The Art of Faery" & "The World of Faery" now in stores! I was also selected to have my artwork appear in "Spectrum 11," "Spectrum 13," and the new "Spectrum 15"! Also be sure to check out my solo art book called "Fairy: the Art of Jasmine Becket-Griffith" as well as my NEW "Jasmine Becket-Griffith: Portfolio Volume I" solo art book! Be sure to check all of my galleries, I paint new paintings nearly everyday and plan to add them as prints here often!
