A Life of Creativity
Jon Crocker grew up in Colorado, sketching and painting from childhood. He studied Fine Arts at Colorado State University where his talent developed, particularly in portrait and figurative studies. Jon used his creative talents to established, managed, and eventually sell two Advertising Agencies.
In 2012 Jon re-focused on his art having lost four loved ones within a short space of time. He found that time spent painting was cathartic and motivated him to share his gift with others.
Jon now straddles the Atlantic Ocean with studios, shows and clients in Phoenix and Colorado (where his beautiful daughter lives) and he currently resides part of the year in the picturesque village of Ballymore Eustace in Ireland.
Everyone ask why I choose to paint in watercolor. It is considered the most challenging medium, unforgiving with no margin for error. Like life - you have no second chance!
However, the brilliance of the purity of light, which only watercolor provides, together with the challenge of capturing the mood, the energy, the soul of the subject makes each artwork a unique experience, a performance in itself.
