Shipston’s Painting Plus is an owner/operated business in Ontario, Canada. Owner Martin Shipston has over 34 years experience in painting and construction, his first contracted job being at age 18. Starting out in the workforce he was self-employed in painting and construction plus seasonal work in many facets of creative media. For six years he worked all over the country for a pre-fab building manufacturer, involved in concrete forming and foundations, rebar, carpentry, roofing, and everything in between. In the winter lay-offs he continued painting. Work was found with another concrete forming company where he received certification for working with ICF forming systems.

Eventually Martin decided to go back to strictly painting and decided to register Shipston’s Painting Plus as a business in 1998. After many years and satisfied clients the fully insured company became a member of PDCA (Painting and Decorating Contractors of America) as an International member.
Martin has also received a diploma from SCI for Basic Interior Decorating and Design.

Besides construction, over the years work has been done in many mediums and areas. These would include interior and exterior painting, fine art, folk art and wholesale crafts, faux, trompe l’oeil, and even murals for select clients.
