Marisa Mallol was born in Alcoy, Spain in 1942. At the age of thirteen, Mallol began her first studies of painting. With a passion for painting and a love for challenge, Mallol has continued to search out new subjects. Because of her talent and desire, she has been able to encompass many themes in her paintings. Most recently, Mallol began creating realistic still life paintings with fruit, flowers and glass objects. These paintings are created with delicate and decisive brush strokes that pull the viewer into a world of realism.
