Description

About this work

When I think of Earth-centric utopian ideals, my mind immediately goes to the concept of peaceful co-existence between humans and our planet’s other animals.  Owls have long since served as a symbol for wisdom and power, often a representative of pagan goddesses, Athena, Minerva, Cailleach, Arianrhod and others (hence the title of this piece – “Silent Wisdom”).  I also wanted to include imagery symbolic of the Earth’s natural bounty and fertility – displayed here with the many sumptuous fruits, wines and plant life.  If you look closely, you may notice one of the plums resembles our planet itself!  This tranquil scene is a visual summary of the different kinds of life abundant on our planet, a microcosm of the important resources and relationships we need to conserve and protect.

Bio

Hi everybody! I’m Jasmine Becket-Griffith, the girl who paints all this stuff. I am a free-lance, self-employed artist. It is my full-time job, and I’ve been doing it professionally since I started strangeling.com in 1997. I live in Celebration, Florida with my husband Matt. He works for me as my assistant, and processes & ships a lot of the orders, prints, etc. We have three cats – Mama Wolf, Sunshine and Tigrillo! 
Most of my time is spent painting. People often ask “how do you have so many paintings?” – the simple answer is that I paint all the time, seriously!  When I’m not painting, I make appearances at art conventions, exhibitions, and festivals where I sell my work, paint live, and meet my fans! Occasionally I am able to take time to travel and spend time with family, usually returning with new ideas for more artwork! I love animals, I am a vegetarian, I love reading (fantasy, horror, history, science, art books, etc.), listening to music, and visiting beautiful places around the world.
