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. I always loved to express myself artistically in any way that I could. It has been an absolute joy and pleasure to explore the freedom of just me, my brushes, and my paints in the privacy of my studio, bringing to life ideas that only existed in my mind. Until recently, I have only shared my work with my family and close friends. However, with their encouragement, I feel it is time to share my love of art and life with a broader audience. I kindly invite you into my world and I hope that something resonates with you. 

Thank you,


John Pawlica Stefanski
