We had the good fortune of connecting with Jake Beauchamp and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jake, why did you pursue a creative career?
When I decided what I wanted to be when I grew up it was definitely not an artist. It just kind of happened one day, my dad brought home these “how to draw books”, and I started looking at them and imitating the drawings in my own interpretations and styles. That was when I was 7 years old. Art has been the constant in my life, always there always fun, and always evolving.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
My artwork styles and techniques have been learned in and outside of schools, imitated from others, created or new combined techniques to constantly evolve in the Art world today. Being an artist today takes a lot of patience and dedication to be successful. Every artist can tell you about the failures, but most would be proud and excited to talk about the successes. My Art has been created by combining water or mineral spirits to acrylic paint which creates a fluid acrylic type paint that flows across the canvas with swathes of emotion and juxtaposition of color. I create my Art to stimulate my viewer into having an emotion about the art, if I can get that response from my viewer then I’m already successful.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
A few sites That would be on the itinerary would be red rocks amphitheater, 16thstreet mall, Santa for art district Friday art walk, Rino art district, check out art and hang out at some local spots I know in those areas with good food and drinks, some with live music. Denver is a great town for a lot of different things from sports to art to music and more. Always something going on in Denver.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Leighann Newcomb- Art promotion /Friend

She has supported my art for over a decade and exhibitions have changed over the years, but we’ve stuck together and found success and struggles together.

Sonja Beauchamp- Wife/Business Manager

She has seen me at my worst and at my best, and stands by me through it all. Creative block, and art criticism to unliked artwork, the support is what helps me to be more successful.
