About Deb


A skilled and knowledgeable expert on natural, non-toxic, modern paints, renders and finishes, Deb Preston founded Painted Earth over 20 years ago.

Starting in 2002, as a small home-based business, Deb had a simple intent. She wanted to make sustainable, non-toxic paints and finishes more available to the general public. At the time, there was minimal information available, and even less interest, in non-toxic and low toxic paints, renders and finishes.

Fast forward 20 years, Deb’s expertise, detailed product knowledge and experimentation with the finishes has fuelled Painted Earth’s growth. Painted Earth is now Australia’s largest supplier of non-toxic and low toxic paints, renders and finishes.

A passionate health, organics and sustainability advocate, Deb has spent the past 30 continuous years working, studying and cooking in the natural therapies and organic food arenas, in both Sydney and Byron Bay.

A true, yet humble visionary, Deb has a distinct ability to see where and how society can grow to achieve better sustainability and health.

With natural, honest and friendly customer service, and a passion for colour, decorating and beautiful aesthetics, Deb is well-known for her meticulous care in ensuring customers receive the technical advice that helps them achieve the best results from the products – and the exact colour tints needed!
