Melissa, Owner & Lead Decorator/Painter

Melissa Lackey-Hughes


A day spent painting is a good day! I love my job! This is where I started, and this is my passion. I have been painting professionally since 2000 with experience that includes training and certifications working in a Benjamin Moore retail store.

Taylor, Painter/Decorator

Taylor Gray

Painter/Design Consultant

Taylor joined Lackey Decorating in 2020 and has always enjoyed our team dynamic. She enjoys painting as it is a creative outlet for her. She loves the variety of work and seeing the clients happy with the finished product! And, if the client has furry friends around it’s always a bonus for her:)  Taylor also has an Interior Decorating diploma, and has her own business Taylor Gray Design Studio. You can contact Taylor HERE in regards to her Design Consulting Services. 

Jessica, painter



Jessica joined the Lackey Decorating TNG team in early 2022 and quickly became an integral part of our family. Known for her gentle nature and love for all kinds of furry friends, we affectionately refer to her as  “Snow White”. Her kindness and imaginative flair effortlessly blended her into our crew, and now we can’t imagine a day without her. She is a devoted mother and proudly comes from a military family. Originally from the East Coast, we always enjoy discovering the unique flavours of East Coast cuisine through her stories.
