Winner, “The Best of Baltimore” – Baltimore Magazine

“Maybe you don’t need a degree in engineering to be a great painter, but it can’t hurt. Steve M. Dodge at ProPaint Systems, 18 Chestnut Hill Road, Forest Hill, 410-882-6288, worked for the high-tech Applied Physics Lab of Johns Hopkins University before leaving that job to become a full-time painter. Things seem to be working well for him: He won the Painting and Decorating Image Award in 2004, and client feedback we get about his ethics, high quality work, and customer service is off the charts.” Baltimore Magazine - August 2006
