Default Hello

Hi all
I am from Edmonton, Alberta I am new to paint forum. I have been painting for four years and was forced to open my own company after my boss (my Dad) suddenly passed away. I say I have been professionally painting for four years but truthfully it's in my blood. I was raised to paint anyways I've been lurking around on here and have found this to be a really great help, I use General paint...not sure if my American neighbors are familiar with that brand, although they just bought out SW. I should also mention We are an all female crew of four.

Don't mind Ole, he's ok but a little rough around the edges.

This is a great place to ask questions, welcome to the forum.

Hey, Welcome fellow Canuck!

Interestingly enough the other female we see around is also from Alberta....Hotwing from Calgary.

Would be great to hear your perspective around here.

Cheers!

In the late 80's I worked for a company in Nantucket where they had all girl crews. They could do everything the guys crews could do. It was pretty cool. Never seen it since though.
