Made in Wales
I remember the day I told my dad that I was moving to Ireland. He said, "Can I come with you?" So we crossed the Irish Sea together to find out what life in Ireland was like.
Like so many, I fell in love with an Irish girl and with the country. It's home now. I have a family here and I can't think of being anywhere else.
And Dad? Well, he's still here as well.
The beauty of hand painting Kitchens
There is nothing like a truly smooth, even hand-painted surface. The only way I can describe it is that it speaks to you. It has a warmth that makes it very human.
When you run your fingers over a hand-painted surface, you can feel the artisanship and skill that went into creating the finish. Machine-finished or sprayed work lacks that sort of character.
What I take pride in
I have a love of hand painting of the highest quality. I take pride in my skill and ability.
I take pride in making your kitchen a place where you feel surrounded by the human touch. A place you love to be.
I will never cut corners. I won't do it in my house, so I won't do it in yours. When I paint your kitchen, I'm painting something that I feel is mine too. I'm putting my name to the finished work, so I want it to be absolutely first class—regardless of how big or small the job is.
If you have any questions about having your kitchen painted by hand, anywhere in Ireland, just drop me a line.
How I became a Kitchen painter
I'm very lucky. I never intended to become a painter, let alone a specialist hand painter. Yet, here I am. I have found my vocation.
Starting out, I just wanted to learn a trade. I didn't have a preference. I applied for a position as an apprentice painter by chance.
Long story short, I ended up working on the kitchen in John Magner's house. At the time, I didn't know you could even specialise in kitchens. Yet as soon as I started work on his kitchen, I knew this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
Since then, I've worked constantly to improve my skills and my knowledge. Being recognised by Hand Painted Kitchens UK & Europe was a major achievement for me.
