I’m a decorative painter living in the Irish midlands, married, with four kids, my wife works alongside me. Started painting in 81 with a company from Huntingdon, then for Mobsbury builders in Letchworth before moving to Longford where I worked for an established family firm of decorators.
Our work has taken us to paint those dreaded Irish pubs in a fair few different countries over the years, not always a good idea buying kit abroad when you don’t speak the lingo . . though it can be a bit of a laugh.
In more recent times we’ve been decorating churches in Ireland, (lots of time spent designing stencil & gilding schemes and presenting before committees . . always slow burners). We also have a workshop were we restore statuary & furniture, but we’re comfortable taking on any type of paint job really, the more off-the-wall/unusual jobs seem to land our way for some reason . . . but that’s how I like it.
Excellent forum btw,
