Our History

Kimberly Brunko continued as CEO for ten years until the sale of Elliott’s Painting to Michele at the end of 2018. We are grateful to Kim for the dedication and determination she gave to Elliott’s Painting over the decade she operated the company, and we wish her the best on her future endeavors.
