Burnin’ Love Pet Portraits will donate 10% of all sales to birchbark!

Kim Kasner’s entry into the world of pet portraiture was at a local dog-themed PTA fundraiser in a dog park near her apartment in San Francisco. It was a fun, sunny day, filled with furry friends, and the reaction to her booth's display from passers-by was extremely positive. Her first order that day was for a couple who cried when she delivered their cat portrait to their doorstep (it was a memorial). Kim was hooked.

Since starting in 2015, Kiim has experimented with multiple burn pens, a blow torch, ammonium chloride and an electrician's heat gun. She has worked with Baltic Birch, Basswood, Monterey Pine and Acacia and pays close attention to the quality of the materials, using panels originating from sustainable mills, and sanding everything as smooth as the grain will allow. | 415.271.5784 |

“When I hear little details about the pet, do the work, then get a follow-up description of the reaction from the recipient of the piece (often healing tears or much-needed smiles), I'm reminded of why I keep doing this, and I get to feel that fullness that I felt from that first order all over again. I'm very interested in our human connection to our pets, our very real need for them, as well as the bond our pets help foster between us as humans.

Pets are part of the family, and when we lose them, the emptiness we feel is deep. If my work helps someone feel a little bit of healing after that deep wound, the hours it takes to complete these wood-burnings is worth it to me.”

Montagne Russe Winery

Montagne Russe will donate $10 per bottle to BirchBark Foundation for every bottle of 2016 BirchBark Pinot Noir sold.

In 2016 Montagne Russe took full advantage of the ripe conditions to create a juicy, full bodied pinot from Tondre vineyard.  This wine has a rich under underbelly of ripe strawberry and rhubarb.  The winemakers paired the body of the 667 clone pinot with tight grained French oak, 15% of which was new.  This wine recently won double GOLD at the San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition.

“What better way to help out the animals of Santa Cruz and Monterey as $10 per bottle goes to helping BirchBark Foundation help save pets of owners that fall on hard times.” | 855-GO-RUSSE |
