Phil Robinson - Founder & managing director
Having been a music scholar at school, Phil began his career working as a session musician for artists including Phil Collins, Lulu, Gary Barlow and Geri Halliwell, as well as writing and performing for his own band and for television!
Between touring commitments he worked for Sarah Beeny and then for a number of construction companies and interior designers, where he learnt the craft of decorating and project management.
His interest in the environmental and ethical impact of interior decoration was further spurred by the birth of his daughter, which led to him setting up Paint the Town Green in 2007. He is a guest lecturer at KLC School of Design and a member of the Guild of Master Craftsmen.
Phil's ambition is for Paint the Town Green to rewrite the rulebook of decorating.
Katie Baring - Business Development
Katie started her career in the Press Office at Conde Nast where she did the in-house PR for titles ranging from Vogue and Tatler to House & Garden and World of Interiors.
On leaving Conde Nast and taking time to raise her children, she started a building business which specialised in extensions, loft conversions and refurbs. It was here that Katie cemented her love of interiors and creating beautiful spaces.
Having first come across Paint the Town Green as a decorating client, Katie has been with us for over five years and works closely with Phil to generate new business. She's an excellent networker and communicator with a brilliant sense of humour and is committed to building collaborative, long-standing relationships with interior designers and construction companies.
Taz Bogue - Sustainability & Purpose
Taz's job is to ensure that we keep sustainability at the forefront of our projects, whilst also undertaking decorating work.
Taz graduated from Cardiff University in 2012 with a degree in English Literature and has had a varied career, from working as a writer to taking to the skies as a high ropes instructor!
Taz has always enjoyed painting large scale murals in the homes of friends and family, so decorating seemed like a natural next step. Taz is a joy to be around and to work with. When asked about her approach to work, Taz said - 'I think it's important to enjoy what you're doing, and it's great to be able to look at what you've done at the end of the day and have something tangible to be proud of.'
