"IDAL has been immensely beneficial to my career."

IDAL’s expanded liability insurance

IDAL members can work in a more professional manner, giving “peace of mind”   to themselves and their clients.

Much like the murals and unique designs you create, we have crafted and customized this exclusive insurance program for you as Members of IDAL to make sure we are giving you the protection you need at a fantastic price.


We work directly with the carrier and developed an insurance policy with enhanced options for you at a highly competitive price.  Our newest carrier partner, Citadel Insurance, has provided an additional classification for Interior decorators.

Decorative painters are often classified as painting contractors with other insurance carriers. This usually results in higher premiums. It can be tough to find an insurance company that knows your industry and is able to offer great coverage at an affordable cost.

"IDAL is a great resource for artists and business people alike.  We have found that not only is it a community, but is truly a family that we have been privileged to be a part of ... We value our daily involvement with the members and the passion you have for your businesses. We look forward to seeing you at the next convention!" – Janilee Bitsue, Citadel Insurance.
