The Art of Jay Jocham

A lifetime love of nature influenced Jay’s relocation from Milwaukee to the Big Roche-a-Cri Creek where an emersion into a wilder Wisconsin has had an unequivocal effect on his artistic experience. As a successful painter, Jocham has shown his work extensively. His one-man shows include Wild Lives, Into their Eyes, and A Gathering of Cranes. His art has been included in the prestigious Birds in Art Exhibition at the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum, Wausau, WI. Many of Jay’s original paintings have benefited world-wide conservation efforts and reside in private, public and corporate collections.

“I like animals – especially birds. I like to think that my art helps to elevate awareness to the sad reality that they are disappearing from the face of the Earth. Most who enjoy my art already walk more gently upon the planet, but the real challenge lies in reaching those who do not appreciate the preservation of wild things and wild lands. I create art because it makes me feel good and I paint out of respect for the beauty and guilelessness of the animal. For me, the creative process may begin with a single experience, but results in a singular spiritual connection.”    -- Jay Jocham
