About Us


ROLL HER SLEEVES PAINTING was founded by Carolyn Jane Borer in 2009.

Carolyn apprenticed in the painting industry at an early age and went on to study Industrial Design at Carleton University and later graduated in Theatre Arts: Technical Production at Sheridan College.

While at Sheridan, she learned the techniques of faux painting for film and theatre. Immediately, Carolyn knew she had a niche; blending her residential painting skills with these creative techniques. Carolyn came back to Ottawa to start her own unique painting company while also continuing to paint sets for local companies like the The Gladstone, The Ottawa Little Theatre, The National Art Centre, and Zed Filmworks.
