A lifelong Disney fan, Jasmine Becket-Griffith spent her childhood visiting the parks, watching Disney films, and of course – creating art! Originally hailing from Walt’s home state of Missouri, Jasmine now lives in the town of Celebration, Florida. Despite living next door to the Walt Disney World® Resort (and visiting a couple of times every week!), Jasmine also finds time to regularly travel to the Disneyland® Resort in California, Disneyland® Resort Paris, and Tokyo Disneyland® Resort as well!
Jasmine began her art career at the age of five, selling paintings door-to-door. By the time she was 17, her ‘professional’ painting career was in full-swing and she started her online art website in 1997. Ever since, she has been painting full-time. Jasmine’s artwork can be found in many books, magazines, lines of licensed merchandise, and in public and private collections throughout the world. Her other primary art gallery is also on Disney property – Pop Gallery at Downtown Disney West Side at the Walt Disney World® Resort! In addition to her new paintings with WonderGround Gallery, you may also have seen her co-branded creations through the Bradford Exchange and Hamilton Collection.
Jasmine is a traditional painter, all of her paintings are painted by hand the old-fashioned way with a paintbrush, water, and acrylic paints. Most are on wood or Masonite panels. Jasmine’s work is populated mostly by female characters with large luminous eyes, in a pop surrealism style dominated by whimsical, fantastic, gothic or historical themes.
Jasmine lives with her husband/assistant Matt and their cats. She paints 10-18 hours a day, but when not painting she is often traveling, enjoying nature, or studying art history. Her favorite attractions include The Haunted Mansion and Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride.
