About Us

My mother, Dora, has been behind the scenes from San Diego giving me advice from the very beginning, supporting me from day one . I  convinced her to open a location in San Diego!!! It has been a great journey. 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 - CEO/Founder

Owner/ Founder  - Delilah Martinez
The first time I attended a painting class in Dallas, TX, I was hooked and knew this was an experience I wanted to keep sharing. The class brought me back to a familiar place from when I was younger. It reminded me how much I love to create and appreciate art.  It was at that time I decided to move back to Chicago in 2013 where I was born and raised to start VIP Paints.  I was really excited about creating an atmosphere of fun, intimate surroundings, music, to connect with the inner artist in you.
VIP Paints is located in Pilsen Community has been a wonderful experience, it has been extra special to me because my parents are originally from Pilsen.   The sense of community, knowing my neighbors and the owners of small businesses is what I love most about it!!!
I created  VIP Paints because I wanted to provide a place where people express themselves through art.  A memorable experience,  where you tap into your creative side.  I strongly believe it is important to give yourself an outlet  to be creative and get away from the outside world.
It has been an amazing journey, I'm grateful for all the support from family, friends and customers.  The talented instructors and staff have been a huge part of our success and growth and is what makes VIP Paints an extra special place to come too!!!

I am Dora, owner of VIP Paints-San Diego. 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. VIP Paints San Diego is now available for mobile events.
