    Because everyone asks!

    Alison & Tone - Vancouver Island

    When my son (Tone) was little I always called him “Sunshine” so when I started the company I wanted him to be a part of it so I spelt the name SONshine.

    I also wanted to allow the possibility of guys (sons) to work for us too.


    The "girls" was added because when I painted for someone else, I inevitably encountered people who demanded to talk to the male boss or who thought women couldn’t work in the trades. I wanted to avoid that stereotype.


    It worked! I have amazing clients who support Sonshine Girls Painting and women working alongside men in the trades.


    It has been an incredible journey.

    Collaboration beats competition

    Nothing beats a good team

    Communication is key

    In hugging those you care about

    Coffee is a good start to the day

    In making choices today to make tomorrow easier

    Your decisions today should ensure no regrets tomorrow

    We can’t change other people

    In leading by example

    In trusting yourself

    We believe you know what makes you feel good

    Dealing with the trades should be as easy as possible



    The details matter
