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

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

Bronle’s art education has been self-directed: a lifetime of every-chance-she-got classes with artists and teachers of drawing, painting, pastel, and abstracts.

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

Bronle is married and has two adult children.
