Udoka Uju: The lady Painter

Udoka Uju is a young lady from Imo State who was formerly a banker. She is a graduate of the University of Port Harcourt, where she studied Economics. After graduating in 2010, with no clue on what to do, she picked up Rick Warren’s book “The purpose driven life” and began to navigate a new mindset for herself after that; first in the financial sector and later in the creative world.

She realized she enjoyed bringing walls to life through paint and imaginative use of colors. She loved painting walls, making the spaces beautiful, inviting, warm and cozy. That was how The Lady Painter got started!

She started painting in October 2015, not long ago. And what led her into the interior and exterior painting is the fact that she has been to many homes and sees the same wall everywhere. Nothing interesting to look and some walls just have funny designs or colour combination. So, she saw that as a problem, and asked a few friends what they thought about having a beautifully designed wall and they all loved the idea but feared that it was a luxury to have such in their homes. That led her to want to be a painter, to paint homes and offices beautifully at very affordable prices.

She is alone in the business for now, she just have painters that paint for her when she gets a job. She handles the marketing and financial aspect of the business alone for now. But her business is expanding soon so she would have to employ people to handle some of all that.

You can start from anywhere. You don’t need millions to start up. Just take the bold step today. We hope this has inspired someone.
