This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A textile designer and painter based in New York City, Rose Piper earned a B.A. degree from Hunter College in New York in 1940, and attended the Art Students League from 1943 to 1946.  From 1947 to 1948, she was in Paris where she took classes at the Ecole des Beaux Arts.

Early in her career, she did abstract expressionist painting, many of them inspired by 1920s work songs of African Americans.  Needing to make a living, she gave up painting, but returned to it after 25 years with a much more controlled style influenced by her many years in fabric design.

She was the owner of Ransier Studio Cards in New York from 1949 to 1953 and after that had a career as a textile designer and colorist.  Her employers included Studio Fred Levi, Alamac Knitting Mills, Lebanon Knitting Mills and Jarmel Knitting Mills.

From the Rosenwald Foundation, she received a grant in 1946 and 1947.
