Jean Gidich. Fine Art Prints

 About a year after receiving my BFA in drawing, painting and printmaking I accepted a position as an instructor in a summer art outreach program with the intent of returning back into the studio "shortly". Fast forward 28 years in education to a day when one of my graduating seniors gave me 3 pens telling me ,"I can't wait to hear about the great things you'll create with them."  I promptly put them in my desk and there they sat without a second thought all summer break.  Come Fall semester, I opened that desk and the first thing I saw were those 3 pens staring back at me. I began to draw a head study of an owl. It was as effortless as breathing and I completed it that very day. Although I had created many works during my teaching tenure nothing had clicked like this since college.

I had loved and I had lost.

I had taught and I had learned.

I had lived a life preparing me to create. 

I decided right then and there , this was my time!
 

This website and all the work here represents all the struggle, chaos, and joy that is my life up to this point.   It’s all right here.
