Jodi MonroeFirefighter Art by Jodi Monroe:

From her Web Site: “I am a fire wife who creates artwork that honors the amazing men and women who serve as firefighters! As an artist, I have been drawing portraits for over 20 years, but over the past 10 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.

I am married to a career firefighter, Jeremiah, and together we have a son and a daughter. Because of my husband, my mother, who repairs turn-out gear for fireman 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.

Awards and Honors: My artwork is featured on the set of NBC’s hit TV show “Chicago Fire.” I have also been a contributor for Colored Pencil Magazine and most recently my work has been published in “Art Journey Portraits and Figures.” (a collection of work from 100 of the best portrait artists in the world)”
