Our Story

After having spent many years working successfully in Chicago as a business professional in corporate America, Rick Jr. followed his years-long desire to move with his wife, Cindy, and their family back to his roots in central Illinois. Happily married with six children, Rick and Cindy founded Cinric Painting due to their love for people, interior design, and of course, painting transformations.

They have a strong desire to elevate the profession by hiring phenomenal employees whom themselves care equally about the work they perform. With their work ethic and passion, there’s no telling what the future holds for Cinric Painting.

Our Family Tradition

In the early 1960’s, Bill Mulkins began his painting career in Springfield, Illinois. He convinced his son, Rick Sr. and two other sons to follow his career path due to his love for the industry. Years later, Rick Jr. quickly became introduced to the industry working alongside his father during summer breaks and college.

Today, Rick Mulkins Jr., owner of Cinric Painting, is a third generation painter who proudly carries on the family tradition that began nearly sixty years ago.
