About the Author/About
my name is Sharon. I have been painting windows for over 25 years
and it has been enjoyable and profitable. Besides the freedom of
self-employment and self-expression, Window Painting has afforded
me other opportunities presenting themselves in the areas of
banner work, poster art, permanent wall graphics, vehicle
graphics, vehicle lettering and more.
I have done
work for countless small and large businesses, business chains,
county fairs, promotions at convention centers, theatres,
churches, and even for Olympic game sponsors. During this time I
have dealt with literally thousands of people from all walks of
life and that alone has spelled
plus for me has been that I have been able to work with my best
friend and husband George and we’ve experienced many fun and
wonderful memories together. We have even been able to work our
business around the raising of our kids. This gave us more time
with them that many people miss out on. It’s been wonderful!
If you are unsure what
Window Painting is, let me clarify it for you…
It is the
profession of advertising a client’s merchandise at the point of
sale (that is, at the actual business location) on the glass by an
effective explosion of color, wording and artwork whereby anyone
passing by will be hard-pressed not to notice.
It is a visual
24-hour bold statement advertisement that remains until a client
wishes to change it.
It is an
extremely feasible choice of profession, especially today when
businesses are downsizing and job security is shaky. Everyone in
business needs to advertise and Window Painting is a wonderful
instrument to attain this.
Even for those
not looking to turn Window Painting into a career it is still a
great source to quick, extra cash. For those in college, trade
school, high school or while still deciding on a future vocation
Window Painting is a fun and rewarding way to earn money.
I believe that
Window Painting can be a direction used to point our at-risk youth
that would give them something to strive for, something reachable.
I believe that many already have the talent, albeit misdirected. I
would be so humbled to be able to help even one of these kids.
early on (when I couldn’t get any of the tight-lipped old timers
in the business to give me any information) that I would have
given my right arm (not my left…I’m a lefty) if someone would have
taught me how to paint windows.
So, here is my
book packed with over 25 years of experience and practical
knowledge. I designed it to help get people past the many
headaches of using the wrong techniques or tools so that one
wouldn’t have to redo a work causing the loss of both time and
money. I have attempted to simplify the understanding of the craft
so others can tap into a market that, although very old, is still
virtually untapped. There are just too many windows out there for
George and I to paint by ourselves!!!
