Artwork by John Durfey

MCAD alum John Durfey is featured in a La Crosse Tribune article that delves into what it takes to earn a living as an artist. The story starts in 1978, when the newly graduated Durfey starts and runs his own painting and interior decorating company, a venture that will last for several decades. His pursuits included painting murals for Floridians living in gated communities and selling his contemporary pieces to businesses.

Durfey tells La Crosse Tribune about the importance of making connections, saying, “I just constantly put my name out there. I got a lot of my business through meeting people, and through friends and family.”
