Jesse Crock is a Golden, Colorado-based artist with a love of climbing, cycling, and the outdoors. The rich color and sharp contrast of his acrylic paintings attempt to capture the vibrant Colorado landscape of the places he travels. Jesse Crock is an elementary art teacher who finds that he often connects his work with the playfulness of his students and is inspired by the energy they bring to the classroom. As an outdoor enthusiast, he brings the viewer’s eye to places that are not often painted.
His work has been commissioned for the Ouray Ice Climbing Festival, the FIBArk Kayaking Festival in Salida, and for craft beer labels for the Eddyline Brewery in Buena Vista. He was chosen as the 2012 Golden Fine Arts Featured Artist and has created the Golden Christmas ornament the past two years. He has created several large outdoor murals in Golden like the north wall of the Mountain Toad Brewery.
