    BrentArt did an amazing job on my paddle! I won it as s result of their paddle giveaway on Instagram. They were super responsive and the turnaround was quick after I submitted my details. My paddle had my sorority crest, letters, and my line # + nickname. When I got my paddle I was honestly amazed! The crest looked so sharp it was shocking! I could tell that they spent a lot of time on the detailing and the end result was truly stunning!

    Thank you BrentArt for the amazing paddle! I'd definitely recommend them for their awesome artwork!

    These two paddles are my favorite things in our new apartment! BrentArt is communicative, professional, and has an amazing attention to detail! Thank you for turning my vision into reality!

We are a Chicago Artist Family specializing in custom and original art.

I'm Elizabeth, the youngest artist in our trio and shop owner. I received my BFA in Art Education from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. As both an artist and teacher, I really enjoy sharing my love of art with others!

The idea of BrentArt began in the 70s as a vision of my dad, Larry Brent Sr. He was the "go-to" in the neighborhood for custom hand-painted store signs, banners, calligraphy work, and wood-carved plaques.

My brother, Larry Brent Jr. is a talented poet and artist who created his entire body of work while in prison for 25 years. Together, we make up BrentArt, specializing in different art media and styles, here to meet your custom art needs!
