Jeanne Gamble has made her home in the coastal communities of Alaska for 45 years. Her adventures include living off the land and being graciously adopted by the Southeast Alaskan Tlingits whose distinguished culture inspired not only her designs but her spirit as well. Jeanne keeps her work simple but strong with a natural flow between spiritual and realism. She now lives along the shores of Alaska's Cook Inlet, continuously inspired by the majesty that surrounds her.
