About Us

We are now a mother/daughter business!  My mother, Dora, has been behind the scenes from San Diego giving me advice, support everyday through many phone calls from day one of VIP Paints-Chicago . I finally convinced her to open a location in San Diego and it finally is happening.  But we couldn't have done it without the support of family, friends and above all our customers.  Thank you for your support!  Delilah and Dora.

Delilah Martinez - Chicago, IL CEO/Founder

I am Delilah Martinez, CEO of VIP Paints. I am excited to bring the experience of fun, art and expression all in one. The first time I attended a class in Dallas, TX, I was hooked and knew this was an experience I wanted to keep sharing. I decided to move back to Chicago in 2013 where I was born and raised to start and share the VIP Paints experience of providing an atmosphere of fun, intimate surroundings, music, to connect with the inner artist in you.

Being part of Pilsen Community - Art District, is exciting for me because, Pilsen is where my parents are originally from. I love to give back to Pilsen community by donating school materials to CPS teachers and kids painting classes to kids from the Pilsen community. What I love most about my business is helping people express themselves through art. I feel in todays world it is important to have an outlet to express yourself, be creative and get away from the outside world. Here at VIP Paints we love to provide that experience.

Thank you for choosing, VIP Paints.


Dora Castillo Rico - San Diego, Ca

I am Dora, owner of VIP Paints-San Diego. I am excited to bring VIP Paints to San Diego. We will be located in North Park Community. Like the Chicago location my goal is to provide a fun, social environment while having you get in touch with your inner artist. After many phone calls with my daughter, sharing ideas, business plans, advice, research and challenges she convinced me to open a location here in San Diego where I've been a resident since 2003. I look forward to having you come to a painting event at our west coast location.
