Lanne's Studio - Insiders' Peek


Well, well...I must say I cannot get enough of artist Jennifer Lanne's home and studio. Both are glorious and a wonderful reflection of the artist's personal style and farmhouse chic aesthetic. And so, I am particularly thrilled to share the news that Jennifer has just been featured in a 10 page article in the latest issue of "Where Women Create".

The article is loaded with gobs of images and peeks into every corner of Jennifer's barn studio. It also tells the story of how she got her start as a painter, and the long road to her current space and home studio...

Here's a behind the scenes peek at the shoot that made the article possible when Kathy and I headed to Ballston Spa on a freezing cold day in January. We do have our share of adventures together!

Jennifer set to work painting, and we tried to capture her in action along with her space...

I love the sassy T-shirt!

They didn't use this portrait in the mag, but I think it's a fun shot...

And I also love these images of her paintings...and the still lifes that inspire them...



Here Kathy and Jennifer take time out to visit with the pig pals and farm princesses, Olive and Violet...

And here's Jen with her hubby, Dick...

We really did have a wonderful time pulling the shoot together and a BIG thanks to Jo Packham for the opportunity to feature Jennifer, her work and her space in the pages of the magazine.

If you haven't yet ordered your copy of issue #3, please call or email soon as these magazines do sell out! This issue is jam packed with fab images and peeks inside the creative spaces of so many inspiring women across the country... Here's the cover image...

(It's 144 pages and $14.99 + ship)

Again, a hearty congrats to Jennifer on this fabulous piece -- well done and well deserved!!

And Jennifer, as ever, it's not only my treat, but a real honor to work with you...
xxoo

What a day it was...spending a few hours at Jennifer's unbelievably fabulous house and meeting her adorable family (including her adoring husband) was quite beyond wonderful!!! I think I was a bit gaga about it, but I'm hoping I get invited back anyway. Now I get why her work is so full of love and joy! WWC is a great memory for me...all it's missing is your autograph Jennifer. (and thank you Jen for sharing this special special day with me). xoxo
