In her childhood, Vicki learned various art techniques and art forms, exhibited and sold paintings in her teens, but did not initially choose art as her profession. Always painting for pleasure, she worked a variety of jobs until she went back to school receiving a Fine Arts Department Honors Scholarship and earned a master’s degree in Social Work. With this qualification, she worked for nonprofit organizations for HIV/AIDS education and anti-human trafficking. She taught and developed macro social work curriculum at Florida Atlantic University, and all the while continuing to create art projects and paintings. In 2018, her social work focus and art talent came together to form Vicki Rosenthal Art. Her life and work experiences provided the combined learnings to launch a cohesive social impact art business.
