My Bio
PLEASE NOTE: I DO sell prints of my art. But NOT thru DA. I sell them on my website

Brigid Ashwood's art could be described as Contemporary Figurative Mythic Surrealism. But the artist prefers to describe her work this way: " I paint steampunk bugs, clockwork dolls, fairytales & vinyl toys. I seek to reinterpret mythic and fairytale worlds and heroines' for a modern audience"

A contemporary artist exploring classic themes through a Sci-Fi lens; Brigid's influences and technique are well rooted in traditional mediums such as oil paint and silverpoint. She also works in the luminous tones of the digital palette; merging the labored craft of portraiture with the flexibility of modern mediums. Brigid's work is known globally and has been featured in exhibits around the country as well in books and international magazines. Her originals are collected by notable authors, musicians, actors and CEOs. Brigid's images have been licensed for a variety of products sold worldwide. She resides in Maryland in a 246 year old house with her husband & daughter, and four aggravating yet lovable pets. In her spare time she writes for and haunts Twitter under the handle Skwerlgrrl.

It's been ages since I've been on here ya'll! So sorry for the absence! I've got a ton of stuff going on. Please check out my website and my blog over there. Also I write for when I'm not painting so go read about Geeky Mom stuff if you are inclined. I'm trying to add art here when I can. Cheers!
