Hello

Brenna Brom of "It's a Whimsical life" has been creating whimsical art since 2016. While her art has evolved over time, she currently focuses on her colorful and vibrant acrylic paintings and prints. When she gets sick of painting, she likes to turn her art prints into whimsical earrings. Brenna is also a group fitness instructor, a team member at Threshold Arts organization, and a mother to a lively 2 year old. Creating has not only been a small business venture for Brenna, but also a positive coping skill and means of relaxation. Life is full of chaos. Brenna likes to hone in on that chaos and create something whimsical.

Let's talk Art

Brenna focuses on her acrylic paintings, which feature bold colors and playful nature-like themes. Using intricate black detailing, she organizes these vibrant, chaotic pieces into something whimsical. She compares her pieces to her life. Overwhelming and messy, but capable of order and magic.

While acrylic is her favorite, she has also dabbled in gouache and watercolor painting, digital art, fine line marker drawings and embroidery. 

Brenna's fine art print earrings are cut directly from her art prints. She glues them to wooden pieces and tops them with resin. All her earrings use sterling silver or gold plated hardware. They are whimically unique and one of a kind!
