After college, Roosevelt began teaching as an instructor of printmaking at the Nova Scotia College of Art, in Halifax.  During the 1970s and ’80s, he traveled extensively through Europe, South America and the Far East, including a two year stay in Tokyo, soaking up techniques and knowledge of printmaking to enhance his own art. He has exhibited his work all over the world, in solo and group shows.
