BIO

Bronle Crosby is an abstract realist painter who lives and works in San Diego, CA.  Her artistic goal is to invoke calm and contemplation. She paints focussed natural histories: close-up corners of the big picture of life, in subtle colors and painterly detail.

In addition, Bronle paints portraits by commission, teaches painting and drawing, and is on the executive board of ArtReach San Diego.

When not working with heavy metal pigments, canvas, and walnut oil, Bronle is reading and writing, cooking complexly delicious things, and enjoying paradise.

Bronle is married and has two adult children.
