Meet Your Car Paint Repair Artist

Hello! I’m your friendly neighborhood paint-chip repair guy, Steve. I’m the owner of PaintCraft Car Paint Repair.

I’m a classically trained artist and have found my niche doing paint touch-up on cars. The Porsche Club of America, Mequires Wax, and the Vice President of Mazda North America have called me the “best touch-up guy in the country.” It’s not just that I’m a trained artist, but also because I use the Dr. Colorchip paint system. The Wall Street Journal called it ‘the best touch-up system on the market’.

I’ve worked on so many cars now that it’s hard to keep track. A rough estimate is around 40,000 cars (update 01/2021: I’m at about 90,000 now). I had to do the math a few times to make sure. I know it seems like a lot, but I’ve been doing this for 12 years. Regardless, there’s no paint damage I haven’t seen.

In addition to being an artist, I am a published writer. I write articles about personal integrity, honesty, and how to find peace. I have a master’s degree in business and am always thinking of ideas to help my customers succeed.

Not Just Some Guy

I only mention these things to point out that I’m not just some guy with touch-up paint trying to make a buck. This is my career, and I happen to love what I do. I’m not motivated by money. I am motivated by seeing my customers do well, and seeing cars sell quickly at their highest profit. If there are other ways I can help, I’ll make that known, or please ask me. I love helping people.

I’m always happy to give you some pointers or tell you the best place to get your car fixed. Many people automatically think the dealership is the best place. It’s actually the worst. Send any questions you have and/or photos of your car’s damage to and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can!
