Violet Rosengarten began her artistic career as a textile artist, apprenticing with the indigenous people in Mexico and Guatemala.
Her scarves and shawls sold at high-end boutiques on Madison Avenue and at Bonwit Teller in New York.
Her tapestries explored colour, texture and abstraction. Upon graduating with a BFA in 1989 from Concordia University in Montreal, she became a painter.
Violet creates mixed media abstract paintings. She also enjoys plein air painting. She has exhibited in solo and group shows in Quebec, Ontario and now in Nova Scotia.
