Our Story

We’ve always loved the concept of creating a space where people can go to hang out, unwind and paint. When we first heard of Paintlounge, we couldn’t wait to go to it and experience it for ourselves and quickly became repeat customers. Then, when the opportunity came to purchase the existing company, we couldn’t pass it up! In April 2018, we became the proud new owners of Paintlounge.

“Making art…may be as important to your health as balanced nutrition, regular exercise, or meditation.” Cathy Malchiodi, PhD

So who are we? We are entrepreneurs with existing businesses with the love of art and creativity. Between the three of us, we have the skills and education in Interior Design, Fine Arts, Psychology and Masonry Construction.  Sounds busy? Just a little.  However we also believe in a balanced life, and what better way to do that, in this day and age, than paint. It’s been said that tapping into your creativity could improve ones mental health and wellness,and we are true believers in just that.


Our intention is to maintain the existing concept of a laid-back art studio where great memories can be made with family and friends. Our vision for Paintlounge moving forward is to allow art to be used as a tool to encompass and centre the mind, body and soul. Our continued hope is to show people that social painting can be non-intimidating and fun, even if you have never picked up a paintbrush before. A place to tap into your inner child, express your imagination and be inspired anytime you need to. And the best part is you get to leave the mess behind and we’ll take care of the clean up!
