Meet Art Collector: Dr. Rosengarten
A short story about his painting:
Dr. Mark Rosengarten is both an obstetrician gynecologist as well as a trained cosmetic surgeon. His office is located at City Square, Vancouver. Dr.Rosengarten came across my work in 2007, while visiting a mutual friend. In 2007, I showed “Mothers & Friends” at a local Starbucks. This particular Starbucks, located on Cambie st. Vancouver, used to support local artists by designating a wall for the purpose of showing local art. Friends and family gathered at Starbucks to celebrate the beginning of my journey. A friend of mine suggested that after the exhibition I should bring over her home “Mothers & Friends” and see if any of her friends or acquaintances express any interest in my work. Luckily, Dr. Rosengarten was invited to my friend’s home a day after I delivered the painting. Both Mark and Natalie (his wife) fell in love with the artwork and thought that the painting was perfect for their office. It was a winter day when I came to meet Mark and Natalie. I brought with me “Mothers & Friends” and 2 other paintings. I poured so much love and emotions in these 3 artworks making them very unique till this day. I was excited to share these positive feelings with others! Mark and Natalie chose 2 paintings: “Mothers & Friends” which is displayed in the reception and “A secret” which is displayed in a different room.
Dr. Rosengarten’s testimonial: “I purchased Jazmin’s work in 2007. Since that day on, every single day I witness clients telling me how much they love and enjoy her work”.
Natalie Rosengarten’s testimonial: “Jazmin has such an amazing talent at her fingertips literally! She is so incredibly talented and has the ability through her art to make people smile and to bring joy. Everyone who sees her work feels the whimsical, peaceful nature that she has. Jazmin: Keep on enjoying doing art and remember that it brings a lot of peace and joy to others”.
In 2007, I got inspired and encouraged to paint when I encountered the work of a French artist in a local newspaper. I can’t believe now how I had the courage to do my first painting on such huge canvas, the artwork is 48 x 60”! Apparently I was feeling very confident and felt a strong need to express myself. At that time, my 3 sons were very young so each day I devoted a few hours to work on the women’s expressions. It took me hours to develop each woman’s feelings, focusing on the eyes and body language. I remember the joy of adding glitters to their dresses and the sense of peace I felt while working slowly in this piece. I successfully completed the work.
To sum up this special story with you, I understand that the success and positive impact of Dr. Rosengarten’s paintings is based on the realization I had in 2007 when I found my life purpose and had the courage to let this purpose come to life.
Thank you to Natalie and Dr. Mark Rosengarten for believing in me and for choosing my artwork to brighten up your clinic and to make your patients happy!
