Portrait of Jennifer W. Patterson

is a 10th-generation native of South Central Pennsylvania who was raised in a 200-year-old log home. Naturally, then, she grew deep roots and developed an abiding love of 18th Century decorative arts. She now lives in a classic period Georgian home of her own, she has, since about the year 2000, been making floorcloths based on period designs and techniques.

Having encountered her first reproduction floorcloth in Yorktown, Virginia, Patterson was instantly smitten, first trying her hand at a floorcloth of her own based on instructions from Kathy Cooper and Jan Hersey’s The Complete Book of Floorcloths. Since then she has researched and recreated numerous period 18th century designs, creating floorcloths based upon the compass rose, diagonal and 3D geometric and other designs from John Carwitham’s 1739 catalogue, using authentic period colors.

Patterson also paints trompe d’oeil objects and utilizes other authentic period techniques such as faux-graining and faux marbling.
