Rita is inspired by materials, methods and pattern. She is a builder where the materials work with her to become the art. Her creative process is her personal experience of beauty and asks the question: what if we could transform the world by experiencing beauty? She is passionate about her art practice and moved to Michigan 14 years ago for studio space and to devote more time to her art.
Rita has exhibited her artwork since 2000 and designed interactive art experiences at the Detroit Institute of Arts, in organizations, and with her public art. Rita started painting at The Art Students League of New York in 1999 and has exhibited her artwork across the US. She was a Board Trustee and Chair of the Exhibition Committee at Paint Creek Center for the Arts. Rita’s work is held in the permanent collections of the NYSE, Brooklyn Art Library, and public communities of Detroit.
Rita holds an MPH from Columbia University with a focus on Quality of Life. She is certified in Conversational Leadership by David Whyte, Enchantivism, and the Creative Problem Solving. Rita also is a CPA, Certified Workplace Wellness Program Manager and Public Health and Well-being Specialist.
