About Me


I got my first painting job around 1969. I was 10 and my parents had me paint the backyard fence where we lived in Elk Grove Village, Ill. Mom said I was a natural. I never really stopped working with my hands after that.

I’d do small odd painting and carpentry jobs while attending Western Kentucky University in the late 70′s and then in 1980 I officially started Calvert Painting and worked while finishing my B.S. in Communications at the University of New Haven.

I moved my business to Durham when I moved to North Carolina in 1988 and then to Raleigh in 1996.
