There is an irresistible reason behind Jeanette Le Grue's dramatic use of color, shadow, and moody grays. Born on Kodiak Island, Alaska in 1952, she is one of three children of landmark restaurant owners, "Legs" and Edie Le Grue. Famous for its bears, salmon fishing, and surreal northern lights, Alaska's "Emerald Island" has been an inspiration for greatness.

Le Grue's father always wanted to be an artist, but after WWII, having been trained in the Navy as a gourmet chef, he moved to Kodiak with her mother and opened a harbor-front restaurant and bar. The setting was full of contrasts, awesome skies, and seasons long and short. Midnight sun and days of darkness all played a part in Le Grue's artistic beginnings.
