Well hi all I 'll see if i can keep it brief, 1982 officially I was a paperhanger out of a school in Rutland Vermont , From there I took on any painting that went with it .Since i am a 5th generation painter I had a foundation from my father from a young age so i seemed to always know how to paint . If I hold true to my ability I am a upper end crafts men in every aspect of the field, Since I went through many years of not saying no to any work I became proficient in most related items including tile carpentry plaster rock and more . I have learned from the school of hard knocks in the past - Having taken on more work then humanly possible only to aggravate customers from bad origination.
I am here to restart my craft life as my youngest child is 8 oldest 13 of 4 children I feel I have another good run in me . For the last 3 years I have scrapped metal and have learned to make $ 300 to $ 400 each week BUT before the scrap foray I work for 3 years with a landlord repairing his buildings and wile that was challenging and utilized my skills I need to get back in the market as i have been gone from the local customers,before the land lord gig i also worked for a painting company for 2 years painting houses so I really am out of CIRCULATION .
I feel I have sold out to my true self as a Artisan - with ability in Wall cover Faux - laminate brick in conjunction with all facets of substrate materials . I need to come back, i am very intrigued with many of the new materials out low oder thinners and paints , I hope the members can help me. Currently I have 2 very nice projects to work on and I need to rebuild from there. I am considering becoming a union painter as well. If any one is curious about scrap metal feel free to ask as even i have to admit I'll always have it in my life as well .
