About Art d'Rector

What is Art d'Rector

I am a lifelong artist and part-time illustrator. I'm also proud to be born and raised on a horse and cattle ranch in Sparks, NV. In school my subject of choice was always art and still painted while working in local banks, Savings and Loans, and while at the RSCVA.  In 2002 I decided to become a full-time artist. That's when I chose Art d'Rector (a play on my last name) for my painting business. 

I joined IDAL (the International Decorative Artisans League) a professional organization for those of us in the faux finishing and decorating field. As a member I attended specialized training classes to grow my business. 

My Mediums

In my twenty plus years as a painter and faux finisher I have used numerous mediums including:

  • Venetian plaster
  • Oil paint
  • Acrylic paint
  • Gold leaf
  • Water color 
  • Euro plasters
  • Stencils

A passion to create.

In 2002  I worked on an 11-unit "Little Berkely" apartments in Reno that allowed  for great creativity.  I illustrated the cover art for 4 annual Reno's Snaffle Bit Futurity's and the New Years Eve Buck N' Ball.  I produced artwork in several area businesses including Sonny's Pizza and Pasta, Windy Moon Pizza, Tresses by Twins, and Home to Heal just to name a few.  I have samples to share and photos of past artwork and would love to sit down and discuss your upcoming projects.
