Client Reviews

"I was frustrated not being able to find the style of painting and right color/size/price point I needed after looking a long time. Chicago Skyline Art made it very easy for me. I selected my style and colors and they created a gorgeous painting for my family room at a reasonable price. I would highly recommend them. I am very happy with my purchase and they were great to work with when working out all the details." - Jill C.

"We asked Kathleen to do a unique, custom Route 66 painting for us to finish off our rec room downstairs and highlight our vintage theme. The collage of items she selected matched perfectly along with the late 40’s, early 50’s style and colors we were looking for." - Tim R.

"We absolutely LOVE our custom painting! The whole process of creating it was wonderful. Joseph carefully listened to our vision of what we wanted him to create. He also frequently communicated with us regarding updates on our painting. The final product turned out better than we could have imagined! We frequently get compliments on our painting which is hung prominently in our home. HIGHLY recommend Chicago Skyline Art!"- Katherine C.
