As mentioned in the last blog, it's been 8 years since we started to promote the idea of artistic personalized items. Bronson Hill Arts was hand-painting wine glasses before it became a hot trend from Lolita (available everywhere!) and the others who followed.

But like all things in life, not all paths lead to where you need to go. Sometimes a sharp right turn is needed!

Along those lines, I was asked for personalized items that were more precious to so many people: Pet Portraits.

Who doesn't love their pet? Requests came from friends and a piece or two was commissioned for depictions of their beloved companions. Of course, I had to use my own furbabies as models, too!

The paintings started a little on the cartoonish side, but has evolved to a more realistic look. We've all seen hyper-realistic pet portraits, which are beyond amazing! But, that isn't what we're aiming for here. We are aiming for whimsical with a touch of love attached!

Next week, I'll share a few sweet stories that inspired some of Bronson Hill Arts' other pet portraits.

Well, hello!

When we started Bronson Hill Arts in 2010, it started with the idea of creating fun, personalized gift items, such as simple portraits on wine glasses. We were also approached to produce a note card series that would generate proceeds for a given charity. Which, by the way, were customized as wedding announcements for a co-worker's daughter & son-in-law.

Over the years, we have meandered in some more serious directions. including my artwork & Hubby's photography. We branched into painted glass pieces and did a few craft shows, as well as a gallery show.

But, somehow, we continued to return to the idea of personalized designs for people. Now, we've narrowed it down to a few special items that can celebrate the loves of one's life. Check out what we do here. And, we do still do have collections of note cards to raise funds for select local & national charities, which can be personalized for your event!

So, welcome to our return to our roots! We hope you find something we can make for you!
