"We Climb" One of the most touching moments at FDIC every year is the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation's memorial stair climb. "We Climb" commemorates that event and all stair climb events held around the country. This fine art giclee print is printed on 11" x 14" heavy weight stock and is limited edition, signed and numbered.
Artist: Jodi Monroe
Artist Bio: As an artist, I have been drawing portraits for over 30 years, but over the past 18 years have truly found a passion for rendering works celebrating the profession of firefighting. My goal and passion for each work of art is to make it so incredibly life-like that you can feel the energy of the subject.
My work can be seen on NBC's TV show "Chicago Fire." Please look for my prints "Waiting for the Call," "Axe," and "Attack" in the living and sleeping quarters set near the locker room. In addition, my firefighter artwork has recently been published in "Art Journey: Portraits" and featured in "Colored Pencil Magazine."
I am married to a career firefighter and together we have a son and a daughter. Because of my husband, my mother, who repairs turn-out gear for firefighters all across the country and an uncle, who was fire chief for many years in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, I have been associated with the profession of firefighting most of my life.
