Hi, I am Sue and I’m a Painter and Decorator from Horton, near Northampton.
There are now a few lady decorators coming through but there is a still a gap in this sector for us ladies. There is definitely a gap in the market for female decorators and I have found that a lot of my customers prefer a female working in their homes as we can be more helpful with colour and design suggestions, also we keep a tidier work area.
I take great pride in my work and hopefully the results speak for themselves. I pay a lot of attention to the preparation – if you do not do your preparation properly, you will get a poorer job and lesser finish than you as a customer deserves. I may take longer on your decorating but the quality of my work makes it worthwhile.
To let you know a bit about my background. I started out in my working life in animal welfare at a local kennels in Northants where I worked there for 16 years. When I was 28 I decided on a career change and attended Tresham College in Kettering in 1990. I studied for City and Guilds in the advance craft of Painting and Decorating and gained 3 passes in theory and distinctions in the practical work.
After working for other decorators I had enough customer recommendations to go alone in 1999, business has thrived ever since.
In 2010 I joined the Buy with Confidence scheme that was set up by the Trading Standards Department of the County Council. I am so proud to be able to say I am "Trading Standards Approved". I was also part of the Dulux Select Decorators scheme from 2001 to 2017.
