About The Owner

Steve Adickes

I grew up in Lake Mills, Wisconsin, served in the USAF as an aircraft mechanic and have lived in Phoenix since 1979. I was a Physical Education teacher with the Peoria Unified School District, and that's where my painting career began. I began working during the summer with my neighbor’s painting company. I learned the painting trade and became a professional, custom, quality painter. 

I continue to operate a professional business and have built my business on return customers. I am particularly skilled in dry-wall repair and custom painting systems and techniques. I taught Physical Education to kindergarten through eighth grades for 11 years. In addition, during my teaching tenure,

I coached basketball, track, cross country, and volleyball at the high school and junior high levels.

The teaching process and the responsibility of my students’ success is very enjoyable to me. I have found that teaching experience lends itself perfectly to The Painting Coach. Patience and good teaching skills are paramount in providing knowledge and assistance to my clients. One of my greatest joys in this business is the return business that I get from my customers. The reasons for painting are preservation, decoration, and sanitation. When returning to painting projects we see the longevity of the painting systems applied, especially exterior systems.
