Our History


Shane McAuliffe started as a painter and decorator apprentice in 1994 in his father’s one-man painting business based in Balmoral on the Brisbane Southside. In 1998, he was a qualified tradesman, had complemented his technical skills with business studies, and became co-owner of McAuliffe Painting.


In 2006, Shane McAuliffe travelled to North America to perfect his trade. Working with world-class craftsmen from Leber & Son Inc on some of North America’s most prestigious homes have taught Shane new technical and management skills he then imported back home to Brisbane. Key lessons Shane McAuliffe brought back included the importance of systemised ways of working, sophisticated new paint finishes, and work standards rarely seen in Brisbane. As well as a wonderful wife.


Determined to keep raising the Brisbane standards for residential painting, McAuliffe Painting has since then employed and mentored highly skilled craftsmen who learnt their trade in Canada, Ireland and Germany. Building a team with a variety of cultural and technical backgrounds has proven a successful recipe for McAuliffe’s Painting.


Beyond the rich cultural exchanges between employees and with customers, and the satisfaction of helping talented newcomers integrate Brisbane’s life and workforce, McAuliffe Painting accessed a stream of different skills and practices from around the world (much to the delight of his growing base of loyal customers). Under the leadership of Shane McAuliffe and the development of coating systems with Scott Starchuck , the family business has prospered and grown, providing continued employment, stable income, and a safe environment to a dedicated small team.


The efforts and high standards of McAuliffe Painting have earned McAuliffe’s Painting the Quest Business Achievers Award for the South East area in the Trades category for 3 years in a row (2006, 2007 & 2008).


Although our trade requires an eye for detail, we have a natural ability to see the big picture, including the value of helping people grow and achieve their goals. At McAuliffe Painting we firmly believe that quality competition is a healthy aspect of business, which raises the bar for us and others and benefits customers and the community.


The long term goal for McAuliffe Painting is to raise the Brisbane industry standards for ourself and other companies, and to promote more environmentally and ‘health safe’ products and practices, through our business and regulation.


Finally, McAuliffe Painting ultimate vision is to enhance the lives of our customers, employees and Brisbane community through beautiful homes and businesses.
