A little History: I grew up in Crete, Nebraska. I helped my father work on antique cars most of my life, which developed my work ethic and eye for detail. I worked at Taco Johns in Crete, Nebraska, while attending the College of Hair Design in Lincoln, Nebraska. I performed cashier, drive-thru attendant, dishwasher, and cook tasks. I learned customer service and management in a fast-paced environment. Although this was a fast-food restaurant, it also taught me a lot about work ethic and customer service, which I apply in my painting business to this very day. I then worked at Walker Manufacturing in Seward, Nebraska as a spot welder and fork truck driver in the distribution department. See our Complete Story at Our Story.
After factory life, I enlisted in the United States Army and served active duty between 1991 and 1997. I spent two years in Washington State at Fort Lewis working as a Unit Supply Specialist at an S-4 for 555th Combat Engineer Group. There I worked my way up from an E-1 private to an E-4 Specialist in under two years while attending Pierce College at night. The following four years I spent in Hohenfels, Germany. I was a Unit Supply Specialist for an Observer Controller Team and managed a supply room for 1-4 Infantry Battalion while taking correspondence courses from Moody Bible Institute. I was promoted to Corporal, then Sergeant before my ETS in June 1997. 2 of my 4 children were born in Amberg, Germany. Some of my awards in the Army included the National Defense Ribbon, Army Achievement Medal, Army Commendation Medal, Good Conduct Ribbon, Drivers Badge, Expert Marksman badge, and Expert Grenade Badge. I was 1 of 6 soldiers chosen from our battalion who qualified physical fitness, Army Correspondence Courses, and College to pursue Special Forces. I declined, choosing rather be with my family full time.
I started my painting company as a 1-man operation in 1998 and worked my way up into the high-end residential and commercial painting market. Since then, the painting company has grown, but our commitment to quality remains the same. I mainly estimate about 300 homes and businesses a year and advertise the business at this point. I also work alongside my employees from time to time, training them to provide the highest quality and customer service that Matthews’ Painting Company was founded on. We complete around 120 homes and businesses every year. I am very thankful for our employees, and they are the ones that make it all happen.
I have a beautiful wife who teaches pre-school in the mornings and owns her own tutoring business called Heart of Learning, LLC. She is a fantastic organizer and is very supportive and understanding of my long days as a business owner. We enjoy time reading, biking, taking walks, great food, and just being together.
I have one daughter, three sons, and a precious 9-year-old grandson who calls me Papa and loves it when I run after him, and of course, I never catch him and a 7-year-old granddaughter named Aurora who loves dancing and putting her head on my head shoulder as I sing to her.

Hey there! My name is Amanda. I have lived around the Warsaw area all of my life. I graduated from Lakeland Christian Academy. I attended Ivy Tech and obtained a certificate in Medical Assisting. I have been married for 14 years and have three amazing boys. My hobbies primarily include cooking and baking and, of course, hanging out with my family.

Hi! My name is Jamey.
I was born and raised in Warsaw, Indiana. I have a lovely boyfriend along with 1 dog and 2 cats. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, being outdoors, working on DIY projects, and baking/cooking.
I graduated from Warsaw High School in 2016 then moved to Evansville for one year to continue my schooling at Ivy Tech. When I realized 5 hours was too far from my family, I moved back home after that first year. I worked as an Optician for 3 years and learned so much but felt the office setting was not for me. That’s when I decided to look into painting and 3 years later, here I am! During my time here, I have made great friendships and learned so much from the job and the amazing people I work with. I enjoy seeing the excitement in our customers when they see the transformation once the project is completed. I enjoy working at Matthews’ and especially working for a company that cares so much for their customers and their employees!
