Our Story

Express Your Paint Parties was born out of a re-evaluation of life during the CoVid-19 Pandemic of 2020/21. Having decided to go self employed, Richard wanted a business that he believed in and was passionate about,  one that was people orientated and combined his love of painting.   And thus Express Yourself Paint Parties was born.
