Violet Parkhurst


Violet Parkhurst


Violet Parkhurst was born in Derby Line, Vermont. She showed an early penchant for drawing. She later attended the School of Practical Arts In Boston, won a scholarship to the Museum of Fine Arts, Worchester Mass., followed by a year of study at Baylor College in Waco, Texas, then finished her formal training at Los Angeles State College.

Believing that an artist should see the world before they can become a great artist, she indulged her longings and visited every State in the Union, then Canada, In Mexico City she studied art for three months.

Then she was off to South America where she rented a house in Natal, Brazil; studied Portuguese and wrote a book and illustrated it. It was titled "Jaguar by the Tale!" and was published in Rio. Here she painted pictures of the natives, the fruit markets and huts, all of which she sold, To help pay for the travel, she became a Foreign Correspondent for movie magazines published and distributed in South America. She has interviews and photos of herself with most of the top-flight stars.

Violet gave up writing and turned seriously to painting because of her love for this medium. The temperament she inherited from her French mother could best be expressed by oils and brush.

For this internationally acclaimed woman artist is no mild Illustrator, nor is she a dabbler in prosaic landscapes. Instead she specializes in milieus in which women painters have rarely ventured, certainly not with the force, action and vibrancy she brings to her work.

She paints seascapes, life-like studies of the bubbling foam-flinging seas of the world, which thunder on the shores in their wild rush for the beach. She captures the back-lit moonlight seas as well as a summer surf.

For her successful masterful rendering of paintings, Violet Parkhurst has won scholarships, trophies, over thirty blue-ribbons, accolades, critical acclaims and an international reputation.

One of her seascapes was chosen with twenty-four other artists' paintings to tour Europe for the Cultural Exchange. The show was presented at all the major museums. It is now in the permanent collection In the Stockholm Museum.

On Allan Sloanes' T.V. program, Allan introduced her as "The world's greatest woman marine painter."

Parkhurst has a permanent display at her Ports 0' Call galleries in San Pedro, California.
