This past year I was introduced to the wonderful work of artist Jennifer Lanne. I have
been awestruck by her beautiful and amazing paintings.
The person who brought Jennifer to my attention was my friend Stephanie Lloyd. You
see, she and Jennifer are also friends in upstate New York.
Jennifer and her husband Dick Lanne, also an amazing artist, live on an old farm where
the house dates back to the late 1700's. Her studio is in their centuries old barn with
views of orchards, farmland and her beloved animals...chickens, roosters, pigs and
goats to name a few. I'm quite certain these artist's creativity is fueled by the beautiful
and inspiring surroundings and environment.
Jennifer has been featured in the magazine Where Women Create and also Country
Living magazine. She is going to be featured in a coming issue of Where Women Cook
where you will be invited into her home and kitchen and see some of her fabulous
cookie art! I will also be giving you a peek at that in a future post.
But today I want to show you a few of her amazing and beautiful paintings...
Dick Lanne is an artist in metal works. His art of blacksmithing forged sculptural
displays for many of Jennifer's paintings which creates the perfect marriage of metal and
canvas. I am also hoping to be able to show you more of his work in a future post.
They truly are a creative couple...
Stephanie Lloyd's beautiful home holds a wonderful collection of Jennifer's work
including entire walls that Jennifer has painted as murals. Stunning!
As you can see from the picture above, Jennifer is absolutely adorable!!! But, don't
think for one minute that this beautiful artistic woman is a shrinking violet...
I will be showing you more of Jennifer's studio and home and animals in future posts.
In the meantime please take a look at her wonderful site HERE. You can see more
of her paintings and read her charming blog.
I hope you are all having a wonderful week.
