Brigid Marlin

Celebrated visionary artist Brigid Marlin was born in Washington D.C. USA in 1936.

She paints mainly using the Mische Technique, a medieval method revived by Austrian artist Ernst Fuchs, with whom she studied in Vienna.

Her fantasy work can be classified as Fantastic Realism, using figurative elements to represent visionary and psychic subjects, often with scriptural themes.

She has painted portraits, inter alia, of the Dalai Lama, J. G. Ballard and Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. Her portrait of Ballard hangs in the National Portrait Gallery in London.
