Master Painter & Decorator
Hey, I'm Josh. I've grown up in Railyway Street, Cooks Hill - Newcastle has always been home to me. I'm passionate about the people, the history, heritage and progression of the area and have fallen in love with our community.
I initially started and completed my apprenticeship in Newcastle - I moved away from home to grow my knowledge and experience in painting. Situated in Brisbane, I then travelled for many projects to Mackay, Bundaberg and all over Queensland working underneath major painting and building companies. Within this time I learnt all aspects of painting, from house and roof restoration to commercial and industrial projects. I ran jobs including the Sea World Convention Centre, Gold Coast Foreshore, Palm Beach Surf Life Saving Club, Brisbane Clem 7 Tunnels Upgrade, BWS Stores state-wide, 7/11 Service Stations and a major government school contract throughout QLD.
I met the love of my life, my wife - had our first child and decided there was no better decision than to return home to raise our family by the coast. I've taken the leap and started Painting by Josh - our family has never looked back since.

Josh was great. He arrived at the arranged time, did a beautiful job in our two run-down rooms in our 1940s era house (above and beyond) - did it in the time he said it would take - which was very quick ie my daughter could sleep in her room that night- was reasonably priced - and was professional and friendly to me - and to my kids and my dog who all gave him an instant seal of approval. Would highly recommend him. Thanks Josh!

Josh is reliable, polite and professional. His attention to detail is amazing, and he accommodated our short time frame with no fuss. Our house went from zero curb appeal to fabulous in no time! I could not recommend him enough.
Emma Smith, Newcastle
Josh painted our house in Cooks Hill at short notice when we were selling. He was friendly, polite and utterly professional. His painting is top notch. I’ve already recommended him to a colleague. Would definitely use him again!
