My name is Chet Highsmith, a Philadelphia born artist. As a child, I had aspirations of being an artist and after 20 years I did nothing, just doodle here doodle there. After being told by many I’m wasting my talent I decided to pick up my brushes and haven’t been able to put them down since. Fortunately and unfortunately I had a serious accident which left me afraid that I wouldn’t be able to paint again. While changing brakes on my car the jack slipped and my car fell on me crushing my hand and wrist. I was left unsure of my future. However, I knew that my talent was God-given and I was determined to paint again. I have to!! Since then I’ve painted several pieces with meaning such as “His Peace” and “Kat Nap”. In 2015 I was able to start my own paint and sip company. Paint-In With Chet has served well over 2000 people in 4 short years. We bring the party to you!
Through my artwork, I try to convey a message of love, music, and beauty through many different styles and mediums such as acrylic, oil, coffee, ink, etc. I also want to show children and the world that it’s okay to express yourself through art!
I’ve had the opportunity to work on a number of incredible projects that I’m pleased to share. Not only do I enjoy showcasing my work, but also sharing details about the creative process behind each project. Feel free to browse through my portfolio, and get in touch if you have a project in mind that you’d like to explore together.
