Limited Edition vs Open EditionThese prints are Limited Edition, which means that only a limited number are ever made - in this case 25 prints. No more than 25 Hand-Embellished Canvas Prints will ever be made of any one of my paintings. Once those 25 prints are sold - that’s it! Open Edition prints are unlimited in quantity. I will print as many as people would like to purchase.
Canvas vs Glossy Photo PrintBasically these are archival quality prints that are printed onto a sheet of real artist's canvas (Fredrix Canvas - the same brand I paint my original paintings on!). Printing on canvas allows for the art to be stretched over a frame, which you couldn’t do with the Glossy Photo Prints. Also, printing on canvas gives greater durability and creates a final piece that looks more identical to the original work.
Hand EmbellishingAfter the artwork has been printed to the canvas, I then go ahead with my usual acrylic paints and paint brushes and hand embellish each print individually, adding highlights and details in acrylic paint. This makes each canvas just a little different from the rest. I also hand-sign and number the prints in paint. I then paint each piece with a glossy giclee UV varnish which seals in the paint and inks. The print is then heat set at a high temperature to keep the ink from fading and making it water-resistant and very glossy! These beautiful and unique works of art truly are the next best thing to owning an original painting. Even as the actual artist myself, I find it difficult to tell the difference between one of these gorgeous prints and one of my original paintings!!! Please note - the Limited Edition Hand-Embellished Canvas prints here at strangeling.com are the ones I make myself - do not confuse these with the canvas options at my Zazzle print store. THEY ARE NOT THE SAME. Read more about the differences in the question below.

I currently am BOOKED UP for private commissions through mid 2021. At this time I am NOT accepting new custom paintings for individuals or portrait commissions until I have finished those for waiting customers on the list!If you are a company interested in publishing, merchandising or licensing however, please email me with your proposal. I regularly work on commissions, portraits, and custom paintings, and am happy to consider any freelance illustration or design opportunities. I require 50% of the total up front to cover material costs and as a deposit. 100% client satisfaction is my ultimate goal. I am a full-time artist and at any given time I am usually working on commissioned projects, so I typically have quite a waiting list. Please be sure to contact me with plenty of time in advance of any deadline. From conception to shipping I can usually finish a piece within a few weeks, depending on size and level of detail. I first and foremost am a fantasy artist (gothic and faerie themes dominate most of my original work), and pieces in these genres will be given priority. Please familiarize yourself with my style before contacting me - I mostly accept commissions that are done in the style of my original work.
My current pricelist is as follows:
**AT THIS TIME I AM NOT ACCEPTING COMMISSIONED PROJECTS FOR PAINTINGS SMALLER THAN 12"x16".**
The next best way is to CALL on the phone: 1-877-268-6638 (toll-free). Have the item number and title of the product ready (and the brochure, if you got it in the mail). To see a listing of various products that may not yet be on their website, look at my Facebook album HERE for new things to pre-order!
Another way is to order through the mail! If you received a brochure or card or saw a magazine ad - just fill out the form and send it in!
My sister, Amber, and brother-in-law, Chris, have a shop on eBay that occasionally stocks statues. Check those out here: Strangeling Art Emporium

- Many of my statues & other collectibles are Limited Editions. This means that they eventually run out! That's what "Limited" means =)
- You may have pre-ordered something that was part of a "Test Market" and after the initial test-market it may have been discontinued
- They may have simply SOLD OUT and are ceasing production
- There may have been some sort of quality or shipping issue with the factory or distribution that was not resolved and the item(s) is no longer available
- Sometimes items may be seasonal or only available for a short time
- During development, sometimes a collection or collectible may run into some sort of snag and will be re-released later in a slightly different format (such as a doll originally intended to be vinyl may be canceled and later re-released in resin as a separate thing all together)
First things first — here's the lowdown: In the beginning, my Bradford collectibles go through several stages of availability over many months. First they are test-marketed in select areas determined by the Bradford Group. If things go well, they then begin accepting pre-orders through the mail, telephone, and on their website(s). These stages originate here in the US. Then after the pre-ordering stage, the collectibles slowly start being available in other ways, on the International Bradford websites (see below), through some mail and phone orders in other countries, and finally (and importantly) through re-sellers, second-hand sellers, and various affiliates.
Okay now, the best, most efficient way to collect my Bradford Collectibles is to go to the source - the official Bradford International Websites. Not every country has their own Bradford website yet, but they are working on that all the time. Even if your country doesn't have an official Bradford website - don't worry - there are other options too, so keep reading. PLEASE NOTE: many of the official international sites may not yet have my items on the website, it takes months sometimes to get them up there. However you can EMAIL or CALL them and they can sometimes hook you up! Here is a list of some of the official international websites (click the links, search "Jasmine" - or else just go to their Contact Us pages to get the email or phone numbers to ask for Jasmine Becket-Griffith collectibles):
United Kingdom: (search Jasmine)
Italy: (search Jasmine)
Australia: (search Jasmine)

And just in case - United States: (search Jasmine)
If you can’t find something you have seen an ad for, another case may be that the item has sold out. Limited Edition means exactly that - quantities are limited. Sometimes only a small number of a collectible may be made, which means you are less likely to find them on the websites and may have to resort to second-hand or resellers or eBay. Very small or short editions can be very rare and valuable to collectors.
