Meet The Founder

Jeanné Gigi Vancio

Lead Innovator | Master Of Creativity | Founder & Director Of Arte Pad

As a teenager, Gigi came to the realization that she was a creative artist that would use her artistic skills to inspire others. Her desire was to paint and draw but did not enjoy painting by herself. Her journey took her into studying various fine arts and crafts at the University of California Santa Barbara and University of California San Diego. After graduating, she went on to get a graphic design degree and moved into a graphic design career, which lead to discovering the Bauhaus movement. This movement was founded on the idea of creating a total work of art in which all the arts, including architecture, are brought together under one roof. This approach to design combines beauty with usefulness and unified the principles of collaboration with individual artistic vision. Inspired by this, Gigi got the idea for the 24 Hour Arte Pad.
