Company History:

Healthy Painting LLC was established in 1978 by Darryl Whalen. The company, originally Whalen Painting, was re-branded in 2008 to reflect our intentions of operating in the most healthy, safe, environmentally, & socially responsible manner.

In addition to providing the best quality service for all interior and exterior projects, we dedicate a considerable amount of time towards giving back to our communities. Each year we donate many hours helping organizations that are in need of painting related services.

The team at Healthy Painting LLC prides itself on being a thought leader in the local “green” community and are always willing to learn and further educate themselves about new approaches, products and the evolution of sustainability.

Letter from the owner


Thank you for taking a moment to look over my site for Healthy Painting. I’ve been a professional painting contractor since 1978, but my career really began as a teenager that summer, when I worked as handyman within my northeastern Ohio neighborhood. Eventually, I chose to focus my craft towards painting and created the Whalen Painting company in 1983. I’ve been successfully running the business ever since.

In 2002, at the age of 41 I decided to leave my hometown of Cleveland Ohio and move to the beautiful Seattle Washington. I quickly fell in love with the Pacific Northwest and I haven’t ever looked back. The culture of this area has helped to shape my focus on health and ecologically sustainable practices. That is why the company was rebranded to Healthy Painting in 2008 when I decided to commit myself and the company to operating in the most ecologically responsible manner possible, with the greatest focus being on health and safety.

In the past 9 years, in addition to all the great interior and exterior painting work that Healthy Painting LLC has done, my company has taken on many learning opportunities in the field of “green” education. We have memberships in several local like-minded organizations, volunteer, and donate services in the community.

As a lifelong musician and DJ in semi-retirement, I am seeking to satisfy my desire to participate in creative, specialized media outlets, as well as contribute positively to the world at large. I met with the beginnings of success in this endeavor when, in late 2010, I created the Healthy Homecast Podcast  and produced its first episode on January, 2011. The program put a primary focus on interviews related to environmentally conscious products, practices and service providers in the construction field.  In mid-2011, the Healthy Homecast podcast became the GreenerViews podcast, wherein the focus shifted to the areas of health, environmental and social responsibility. Healthy Paint Talk was launched to meet that need and focus specifically on that intention. You can even find some of these podcasts here on the site.

Thank you for taking the time to check out the site and don’t hesitate to give us a call.

Warm regards,

Darryl Whalen
Owner of Healthy Painting LLC
