About JW

I have worked as a professional painter and decorator since 1999 and formed Oakwood Painting in 2010 to coincide with receiving accreditation as a Dulux Select Decorator and membership of the Painting & Decorating Association, The London Association of Master Decorators and the government endorsed Trust Mark scheme.

Most of my work qualifies via the Dulux Select scheme for a 24 month guarantee*, which gives my valued customers great peace of mind.  When you engage me to carry out work in your home or place of work you can rest assured that you are dealing with a professional with the highest standards of workmanship and customer service.

My love of painting and decorating began when I was in my twenties, renovating several of my own homes over a thirty year period.  I began painting as a profession in 1999, having retired from my career as an acupuncturist and Principal of an acupuncture college.

I encourage potential new customers to check my professional credentials via the Painting & Decorating Association Tel: 024 7635 3776 and the website of Dulux Select Decorators  Tel: 0845 762 6990.  As a member of these schemes I hold professional indemnity insurance and customers have the peace of mind that they are dealing with someone who has high professional standards both in my work and in my customer service.  I also hold a clear Enhanced CRB check, for my previous part-time work as a maths tutor and football coach.

I was born in Kenilworth, studied for my degree in Human Biology at Oxford Brookes University and lived in Spain for 8 years.  I am now settled in North London and have a son who is a musician and teacher.  My passions in life, apart from my work, are music, football, cooking, architecture, and walking in Nature’s beauty.
