...painting food


Who knew she could cook too?
Talented painter Jennifer Lanne is also a great cook...I never knew she attended cooking school before she took up her brushes...

What a treat it was to visit the talented Ms. Lanne and photograph her at work...in her kitchen for the December 2011 issue of "Where Women Cook". She takes the same artful approach to cooking as she does painting, decorating and dressing...layering color and style with pure abandon and exquisite results.

Look at these cookies...almost too pretty to eat except that that taste so good.



Can you tell it was a great photo shoot?


Here's a few great shots of the artist at work:



As ever, Kathy came along to help...she really is the best assistant with a keen eye and a great sense of detail and mood.



Here are some image of her farmhouse kitchen...



Stay tuned...her obsession with Spencerian calligraphy extends to recent painting projects...she is cooking up a new batch of work for the May event that tops the charts and tips the scales on style...more on these new pieces soon...stay tuned to the BLOG!
