So my daytime job is at this artists studio in NY called John Derian Co. where we focus on producing handmade decoupage plates, platters, paperweights, coasters and bowls . His designs are sold at upscale home stores, in catalogs, and gift shops worldwide. It's a wonderful place to work where the people are very good to me. I get to assist in design & production and have learned many unique skills that I otherwise would not have gotten to learn had I not worked here. Artist HealeyMade actually worked here first( as one of the skilled artisans in production) & got me my position into the company. I learned a lot from him during his time there( until he moved on to another art studio).
So the writer at the John Derian Journal tumblr-blog was kind enough to write me up in an interview( sort of a get to know the people who work here). It's a very nice article so please take a moment to check it out:
