Sean's Painting Story
When I was a University student, a friend and I owned and operated a residential painting business. The business provided us both with many work opportunities and enough money to help pay for university and a little traveling as well. Looking back, I remember the hard work and sweat we endured, but most of all the enjoyment of seeing a job through and watching the customers eyes light up at the finished product. We were highly skilled, extremely motivated and proud, which was demonstrated through our work. Between then and now, I continue to take every opportunity I can to do residential painting work.
When I finished university and traveling, I found myself joining the digital revolution and quickly achieved a certificate in Graphic Design Applications. My zealous for working and creating in a digital environment quickly catapulted me into learning more technical applications which in turn led to a part time teaching role at Centennial College's - New Media Department. This opportunity led to various IT roles in Publishing as well as Assistive Technology. Having spent the last 25 years sitting at a desk in front of a PC, providing technical support for hardware and software, my work life took its toll on my health. At the end of 2018, I was struck down and hospitalized for Acute Pancreatitis. Around the same time my wife was diagnosed with breast cancer and she is now on her healing path to a full recovery. During my recovery I began walking everyday with my wife, and today walking and running are a daily routine. Activity and motion healed me both physically and mentally.
As I moved forward, searching for a healthier, more active work life, I thought "residential painting can be the solution.” It's interesting how life can circle back to more straightforward things that give us joy and make us healthy.

Arthur's Painting Story
Fine Art has always been my getaway to self expression. I read a lot about the great masters from the past, like Picasso, Rembrandt, and many more from the renaissance period. My favorite master is Leonardo Da Vinci.
I started out in art class with pencils and held a paint brush for the first time working at a bakery. We painted on cakes and this set a trend and took off. My painting skills have been refined through one-on-one master classes with Sean (still on-going).
Residential painting is fun to me. The satisfaction I get when I see a room transformed, coupled with the smile on a customers face, is worth all the hard work and effort we put in. Every stroke of my paint brush, brings out the inner child in me.
