A Taste of the 18th Century


Jackie began her career doing research for the historic restoration of her 1740 farmstead, Colonial Yard, near

Valley Forge, Pennsylvania in 1968.


The estate had been part of the countryside used by
George Washington's Army to evade the British in the
Winter of 1776.  Jackie made a  committment to use 
authentic tools, materials and methods, and to

preserve the historic heritage of the Colonial Estate.
Since neither 18th Century artwork, nor
 skilled craftsman

were readily available or affordable, she completed 

the restoration herself.                         


This quickly led to her next career project, the original 
production of Traditional American Art forms:  

Oil Paintings of Colonial Themes, Authentic Aged Fraktur, Scherenschnitte, Bride's Boxes and Hand-Made Dolls to

furnish the estate.


It was not long before requests were made to purchase

her works and soon after the restoration was complete,

Jackie's career as an American  artist began.


Jackie currently tours throughout the Eastern United

States, though the best way to experience her creations

is to call and schedule a visit to her private Studio and

Gallery located just 3 miles North of the Revolutionary War Headquarters of Washington's Army at Valley Forge.
