About Jeanette Le Grue

Jeanette Le Grue was born and raised on Kodiak Island, Alaska and migrated south in 1980. Her interest in painting began at an early age and was encouraged by a wonderful art teacher and professional artist in junior high school. Against the backdrop of a hard and adventuresome childhood her work is uniquely powerful and subtly dramatic, just as you might expect. She is an art instructor, shows locally and nationally, has been published in several national magazines, and has been winning national awards for nearly two decades.

Artist Statement

“I paint in oil in bold fresh color, in the studio and en plein air. My subjects include still life, interior scenes, garden settings and land seascapes. I am inspired by moody days on the water, or patterns of light and dark in the landscape, and prefer to express the feeling of what I see. I like to paint loose, with large brushes, and apply large spots of color within a strong abstract design. I create unusual compositions, sometimes breaking up the frame so the objects are cut off at an odd angle. I see myself as a detective trying to capture the vitality of diversity of a scene.”
