Our Story

Interested in knowing how AB Painting came to be?


AB Painting Founder and owner of AB Painting, Aaron Banks, was born and mostly raised on Vancouver Island. His early childhood was spent in Nanaimo, Parksville, Qualicum, and Bowser with his mother, 2 older sisters, and younger brother. His father, who was remarried, gave him another two siblings and growing up he split time between Vancouver Island and Calgary. He now resides back on the island and is proud to call Victoria home.

At the age of 18 Aaron landed his very first painting job, taking to working with his hands quickly and  falling in love with the trade. His passion, along with the mentorship of a great foreman, helped make him into the professional painter and business owner he is today. The difference that a beautiful paint job makes never ceases to amaze Aaron and seeing his customer’s reactions to the final product is what excites him most.

Aaron’s two children, Forrest and Amelie, along with his beautiful wife Jessica give him the motivation to succeed each and everyday. It was after the birth of his first child that he decided to start his own business, and with the help of Jessica, AB painting was born.

AB PaintingOther than his family, Aarons volunteer work has been the thing that has shaped him most. Herowork is a charitable organization that mobilizes the construction industry and the community to renovate charities for a fraction of the normal cost. When Aaron was first introduced to their work, Herowork was completing a half-million dollar renovation at the Mustard Seed Food Bank and Street Church. This project hit close to home for him, as growing up his mother had relied on the Mustard Seed for food and school supplies every year. In his role as painting team leader Aaron ended up volunteering over a hundred hours in a week to get the job done.  Through this renovation, Aaron developed long lasting relationships both professionally and personally that catapulted him to where he is today.  To date, he has completed four projects with Herowork.

Since then, Aaron’s business coach and community have helped him grow AB Painting to where it is today, always with the goal of exceeding his customers expectations in mind.
