Violette Clemente


Born in France,
Violette and her family emigrated
to Canada in 1977, choosing Calgary
as their destination.


After pursuing various interests
following early retirement,
Violette started taking art classes in 2004
and never stopped painting ever since.


Her travels abroad and in Canada
are a great source of inspiration for her art
along with the many memories of her youth
living in France and in tropical places.
She strives to capture the light,
the colours and the mood
of those sites to share them visually.


Although watercolour is the medium of her choice,
Violette also paints with acrylics and enjoys
exploring other media.
These new approaches to painting
have helped her paint with bolder colours,
more dynamic strokes
and experiment with texture.


Violette has participated and sold at various
juried shows, such as the Leighton Art Centre,
the Calgary Stampede,
the Federation of Canadian Artists
and other art groups.
She is also a member of
the Calgary Community Painters Society,
the Chestermere Fine Art Guild
and a past member of the
Federation of Canadian Artists.
