Meet the owner

Krys Kudakiewicz - Founder/Head Painter

I started painting over 10 years ago as a way to save money for university. In university, I was fortunate to work with Student Works Painting as a franchise owner/manager. This was the start of my entrepreneurial journey, and I haven't looked back since.

I founded Splash of Colour because I realized that most people consistently had bad experiences with painting contractors, and therefore didn't have a go-to painter or painting company. I want to be that painter, and to be that reliable company. I want to paint your home today, and be the painter you call in 2, 5, or 10 years for future projects. I'm as passionate about painting as I am about building this business. I get excited about every project we complete. I'm also driven to improve every day. I'm constantly testing new products and techniques to ensure I can provide my painters and clients with the most effective and efficient experience.

If you would like to learn more about me or how you can become a better painter, please check out the PAINT MASTERY BLOG. If you are trying to paint your home on your own, I can provide a painting lesson to help you achieve the best results on your own. Email me at for more information on painting lessons.

Outside of building Ottawa's best painting business, I love playing ultimate frisbee, hiking, paddle boarding, camping, experimenting with health and fitness, and enriching the lives of people in my community. Now this is starting to look like a dating profile.....

 I want to be YOUR painting contractor, and I look forward to meeting you soon!
