Brigid Marlin was born in Washington, D.C., studied at the National College of Art, Dublin, the Centre d'Art Sacre, and the Atelier André L'Hote, Paris, the Beaux-arts, Montreal, and the Arts Students League of New York. Later she went to Vienna to learn the Mische technique, a process of painting which was a carefully guarded secret of the Flemish and Italian Renaissance painters, and revived after painstaking research by Ernst Fuchs.

She founded the Inscape group of painters, which later became the international Society for Art of Imagination. It included imaginative painting, sculpture, drawings and print-making and is a registered U.S. charity.
