When and how did your business get started?

Having already been in the painting and design industry for many years, my husband and I decided to do something a little different with it and start an ALL-FEMALE company! We thought it would be wonderful to be able to put our greatest skills, ambitions, hopes and beliefs in to a company that represents and exemplifies the strength and determination of women everywhere.

We wanted to help make a difference in an industry where women are underrepresented and to use our success with Babes 'N Brushes to help bring attention to the fight against breast cancer, which affects thousands of women and their families every year (including my family, which took my mother's life in 2011).

What is your business best known for?

We are a full-service painting and design company. Some of the main services we offer are:
-Professional Interior and Exterior Painting
-Drywall Repair
-Wallpaper Removal
-Professional Faux Finishes
-Hand Painted Murals on Walls and Canvas

Why did you choose the town you did to open your business? 

What better town to open your business than the one you live in! However, while we are based here in Yorkville, we do service the entire Chicagoland area. 

What's something interesting about your business your customers might not know?

We support the fight against breast cancer, from participating in fund-raisers to making donations! So, when you do business with us, you are also helping this cause!
