John Derian

John Derian is America’s master of decoupage, which is the art of decorating an object by cutting and pasting paper images. In 1989, he opened his own studio in New York, where he began piecing color reprints of the 18th and 19th century under glass, thereby producing a product line of plates, vases, trays, paperweights, desk accessories, cachepots, wall hangings, and many other items. John Derian launched a environment friendly furniture line with Cisco in 2008, and created an accessories line for Target in 2008 and 2010.
