Hello! My name is Janna Makaeva, I am a professional decorative artist and stencil designer. I live and work in in NYC area with my husband and artistic partner Greg Swisher. We've been running a decorative painting business for many years and have lots of experience in faux finishing and stenciling. I love crafts, handmade things, music and artistic expression and creativity in it's many forms. I love home cooked food and making preserves, also really obsessed with gardening and garden design, and truly enjoy interior design and decorating. I love cats! We have 4 great cats already, and wouldn't mind getting some more! One day I want to learn pottery and ceramics... This is on my "creativity to-do list". And mosaics, too! There are so many fun things to learn in life, right? I hope you enjoy my stencil store and will have lots of fun creating beautiful finishes for your home with my stencils! I am sure that you'll find stenciling surprisingly easy and satisfying. it's really amazing what you can do so quickly with just a stencil and some paint! Please feel free to send your stencil design suggestions, comments, pictures - we love to hear from you! Thanks, and Happy stenciling! Janna
