Rita earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History from San Jose State University and has had a varied professional career as teacher, journalist and photographer prior to becoming a full-time artist. She has studied drawing as well as watercolor and oil painting techniques. Watercolor is her preferred media due to its suitability for design and color experiments. 

"I love watercolor's spontaneity, its fluidity. I glaze layers of color to enhance contours and heighten contrast, striving for texture and  emotion in my paintings. My darks and lights are enlivened with many colors.  My life passions for travel, people, and nature are key elements in subject choice that ranges from still life, landscape, and European themes to figure painting. I hope you find a connection to my work."
