My name is John,

I was born in a small town near Krakow, Poland, where I lived until I emigrated to the US in the 1980's and found my home in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. I established myself as a decorative painter for over two decades, painting and restoring apartments, commercial properties, and homes in Manhattan, Brooklyn and the Northeast area, under Artful Interiors, Inc., my decorative company. However, at home and away from the business side of things, I still loved to paint. Who said you can't mix business with pleasure? I always loved to express myself artistically and I have to say that it has been an absolute joy and pleasure, just me, my brushes, and my paints in the studio, bringing to life ideas that only existed in my mind. Until recently, I have only shared my work with my family and private clients. However, with their encouragement, I feel it is time to share my passion for art and life with people everywhere. I warmly invite you into my world and I hope that you see something you may have never seen before!

Thank you,


John Pawlica Stefanski
