For almost 30 years, Jaron has been painting. And, he makes his living at it. “I have always made art, but I would say that it was my maternal grandmother who made the idea that one could make a living from art seem possible,” says Jaron. “She was a porcelain painter and taught porcelain painting. She always supported and encouraged my interest in art.”
He has exhibited in solo and group shows in the U.S., the U.K., Italy, and Germany, including a solo show at the Minneapolis Institute of Art in 2014. As an artist he makes photorealist oil paintings and looser, moodier, watercolors that are based on photos.
