Jonathan Jaeger began painting full time six years ago after a career as a social worker. He describes his painting style as outside the box and puts his thoughts and dreams into his art. MyMCM featured Jaeger in an award-winning series of features called Black Artists in Montgomery County.
In this short video, Jaeger talks about leaving social work to paint full time and pursue his passion. The change made him feel like the sun was coming up and he was happy.
