About this Artist
"After years of studying classical painting and art history, I spent time in Sweden and England learning and practicing textile design. The historic floor cloth in contemporary form brings together my skills as a painter, and my love of pattern, color, and design."
Patricia Dreher savors the challenge of creating a rug or wall-to-wall installation to enhance a specific space. Solving the problem of making a rug that brings together all the elements of a room is as exciting as making a piece around which all the elements of a room will center. Dreher often draws inspriation from art history, textile design, nature, or classical geometry. Color is a strong component in all her rugs.
Dreher's floor cloths are a great technical improvement over the historic oilcloth versions of yesteryear. Her rugs are made of strong canvas sized on both sides with gesso, and sanded to make a smoother surface. The rug is painted with the highest-quality artist's acrylics and the painted surface is sealed with several coats of high-grade, non-yellowing industrial finish. The backside also receives a coat of protective sealer. So durable are Dreher's rugs that several have been around for 20 years and are still in excellent shape today.» View the full artist page of Patricia Dreher
