Portrait created for the Take Home Nanny episode filmed in our studio ten years ago with the Monteloni Family!

Take Home Nanny was a show hosted by Nanny Emma Jenner that aired for one season one TLC back during the summer of 2008.  The family, host and crew were here for two days, it was a great experience I wonder where Nanny Emma is these days.

The past few months I have been feverishly painting my heart out. This year you will see a lot more oil paintings from me, as I have decided to take my art to the next level. Many of you know Michael and myself as portrait photographers for the past 25 years.  Well now I am embarking to a new artistic career with as much passion, as my heart feels like it will explode if I don't follow my journey.
I love the smell of fresh oil paint on a new canvas.
