Trusted Professional

EST 2006



Growing up and educating in the Ilkley area then working locally I found a keen desire to create a fulfilling career. I started an apprenticeship in painting and decorating at Keighley College. After qualifying at NVQ level 2 & 3 I also received Apprentice of the year and CITB Student of the Year.

Since then I have been in the decorating trade for over 17 years, 12 which have been self employed working in the Ilkley and surrounding areas. I'm always keen to keep prices competitive whilst using the best paint systems, keeping the knowledge of products a high priority bringing the customer both value and a high quality finish.

As standards increase through years of experience, prices still reflect the value for fair exchange. My value is apparent in the hundreds of satisfied returning customers I have delivered to over the 12+ years of self employment. Often my work is appreciated for the problems I solve and the quality of transformation.

I live by the maintenance and improvement of key business attributes such as trustworthiness, professionalism and client centricity. Areas I feel are key to delivering high standards throughout the operation of the business.
