About Us

The beginning

Paintworks & Decorating started in 2012

In classic buddy cop fashion, 2 guys from opposite backgrounds (and opposite sides of the country) end up becoming best friends while working together. But instead of being cops they run a painting and renovation company together.  Born with a paint brush in our hand and the eyes of an interior designer, Paintworks & Decorating was created to improve people’s lives by improving the look, feel, and safety of their home and work spaces. Crafted and polished through 23 years of experience, we know how to get the job done correctly and on time.

Ricky (left) – Founder and Head Foreman

A true New Yorker. A true master painter, he was intensely Union-trained across more than 20 years in painting all types of residential, commercial and industrial surfaces. His eye for detail was developed at an early age when his mother taught him to sew at 5 years old. His design eye evolved and advanced through classes taken at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in his youth. He has built an impeccable reputation through working long hours, constantly learning new painting techniques, and dedicating himself to enhancing people’s lives by improving their homes and businesses inside and out.

Ryan joined the company in 2017 to assist Ricky in transitioning the business into a tech-savvy, well-organized, 21st century painting company. Originally from Texas, Ryan graduated from Texas Tech with a passion for customer experience, technical communication and marketing. He got bit by the home improvement bug at an early age by watching hours of HGTV, TLC and DIY networks with his mother. He lives for the before/after transformation moments from a completed project and hearing the gasp of happiness from clients. His focus is on client satisfaction and spreading the message of excellence that defines Paintworks & Decorating.
