John also hails from Ireland and was born in County Wicklow. He comes from a family of 5 boys and 2 girls. Prior to painting he was a spraypainter in a furniture factory in Ireland. When he came to New Zealand in 1989, he started painting with Rockfern Painters and his first job was on the Hamilton Pak n Save. Like Aidan he has been painting for over 30 years, and he has been part of the Painting Matters team for over 18 years. John likes the job satisfaction painting gives him when he sees the transformation that a coat of paint can make.
John has a partner Michaela and a gorgeous girl called Bella. In his leisure time he enjoys resting, travelling and spending time with Michaela and Ella. Recently he has been trying his hand at renovating his home.
