If An Elephant Can Paint was established in the Edison Park neighborhood in 2003. We've enjoyed seeing our young customers grow up and become our employees.
Owner/Artist Vicky Bellisario started decorative painting at age 10. After studying art all through high school, she went on to receive a degree in graphic design from the Ringling College of Art and Design. After nine years in publishing, she decided that the corporate life was not for her and returned to her love - painting.
Today, Vicky is exploring mixed-media, from polymer clay and glass to receiving Art Clay Silver level one certification. The certification has enabled her to assist the Kalo Foundation in their community outreach, educating high school students about the rich artistic heritage of Park Ridge.
Vicky just can't get enough painting, she paints faces too! You can add face painting to your birthday party at our studio, or you can find her at Chicago Wolves Fun Fest.
