My Story

Meet Glenn Olson

Owner Glenn OlsonI’m excited and proud to bring the Bottle & Bottega concept to Texas and give folks here the opportunity to experience this unique upscale art studio that not only provides the tools, but also the fun, to inspire creativity in a rich, engaging atmosphere.

I am a Texas native, born in Corpus and raised northwest of Houston… growing up on the edge of the piney woods far away from the city. The middle child of three brothers, I’ve had an interest in art from a very early age. I still remember how excited I was to get my first Big Chief notepad and create my book of “masterpieces.” After graduating college and seeing the world (okay, Louisiana and Kansas) I settled down and made North Texas my home in the early ‘90s. I have a beautiful wife and two wonderful daughters.

With over twenty years in the corporate world, mainly in the telecommunications industry, I decided to invest in myself and leverage my business knowledge to start my own business. The key ingredients in this next stage of my life are FUN and FAMILY. I found both of these elements in Bottle & Bottega. Out of all of the art classes I have taken, my experience at Bottle & Bottega has been the best. When I met the owners, I knew this was the perfect franchise for me. Along with having fun, this company is also committed to family and giving back to the community, a foundation that will definitely benefit North Texas. Join me at Bottle & Bottega for a creative experience you won’t forget.
