Violet Gatensby was born in Whitehorse Yukon Territory. She was raised in Carcross Yukon located an hour away from Whitehorse. She is of Tlingit decent and has enjoyed doing native artwork since a young age but it wasn’t until she met Keith Wolfe-Smarch that she decided to pursue it as a career. Keith pushed her to go to the Freda Diesing art program in Terrace British Columbia.
She is now in the first year of the Freda Diesing fine arts program. Before the art program she was designing, painting and making prints of her own artwork back in the Yukon as well as working on a few private consignments.
