Where Women Cook & Create-Jennifer Lanne

Jennifer Lanne is not only a fabulous artist but the girl can cook too! 

The latest issue of Where Women Cook features Jennifer in her wonderful old
farmhouse kitchen in upstate New York.

Jennifer attended culinary school but soon found it was all about the aesthetics, the
visual...painting and decorating.  Now a well known artist and seasoned cook, Jennifer
brings her creativity to both her studio and her kitchen.

Your eyes are not deceiving you...yes, those are beautiful hand-painted cookies...

Her latest painting "A Fragile Harvest" is featured inside the back cover...

I want to thank Jen O'Connor of Earth Angels for letting me borrow these wonderful
photos from the magazine.  Jen is the founder and owner of Earth Angels and, as you
can see, a wonderful photographer.

I had the pleasure of spending a bit of time with Jennifer Lanne and Jen O'Connor when
they were last in California for the "heART of Winter" event.  I kept wishing we had more
time because it was so much fun visiting with them.  The place was packed and everyone
was enchanted with Jennifer's art and the Where Women Cook and Where Women Create
group.  Jo Packman, the creator and editor-in-chief of the magazines was also there
answering a million questions.  They are all fabulous women!

Jennifer Lanne and Jen O'Connor...

You can also see Jennifer Lanne in the lastest issue of Romantic Country magazine...

You can see some of Jennifer's wonderful art at my previous post here.
And you can find Jennifer's site here.

And you can find Jen O'Connor at EarthAngelsToys here.

I also want to mention that Jennifer's husband, metal sculptor Dick Lanne(here)will
be featured in an upcoming issue of the new FOLK magazine.

What a neat post! thanks for sharing this with us. You find us some pretty neat stuff - from your furry (hairy?) friends to painted cookies. xoxo said...

lOVE your blog and am now officially your newest follower:) I think Jennifer is a fabulous artist. I have 2 of her painting and just love them. Do you know if she went to school for painting or is she self taught. That would be interesting to know. I'll be back by to say hello again:)

Thank you all for all of your way-too-wonderful comments! It was so sweet of you all to leave such generous words.
I truly appreciate every single one.
And to answer your question Debra:
I actually went to school for Interior Design...found I really just wanted to paint. Then I did a year in Cooking School...still found all I wanted to do was paint! I guess I am somewhat self-taught...As with everyting in life it's all just trial and error isn't it?!
Jennifer said...

Wow, Thanks for answering my question Jennifer:) You are an amazing artist and knowing that you are self taught gives us even more inspiration that we can do it too. Thank you so much!
