Presentation/demo

Currently, I am delivering illustrated talks at local libraries and club meetings. My presentation is called: “New England’s Timeless Decoration:  The Folk Art of Moses Eaton, Jr. and Rufus Porter”. Attendees learn about the tremendous impact the folk art of Eaton and Porter had on the lives of rural New Englanders in federal period America. The presentation features a slideshow of my journeys throughout New England, where I conducted research in homes, inns and taverns with Eaton’s historic wall stenciling and Porter’s signature landscape murals.  The history of wall stenciling in New England, the life and times of Moses Eaton, Jr., and the genius of Rufus Porter, are all topics that are explored.  Book a talk today!! 

Consulting

If you are considering the timeless style and tradition of early American stenciling for your home, let me help you to create that perfect historic look.

  • Design, patterns, and placement
  • Architectural accents
  • All-over wall design in the tradition of Moses Eaton, Jr.
