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"

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.
